Iminent Toolbar is a browser plugin that adds an additional toolbar on your browser. If you have this toolbar installed, you will see that you can choose from a number of emoticons to add to your chats and messages on various websites, including Facebook and other social networks. As you can probably tell, Iminent Toolbar is not a virus, because there is nothing wrong with adding emoticons to your chats and messages. Nevertheless, some users express their wish to remove Iminent Toolbar from their computers, because it happens to be a potentially unwanted application.

This browser extension is a potentially unwanted application, because of its intrusive behavior. Even though this Iminent Toolbar can be downloaded at iminent.ourtoolbar.com, quite often users install this add-on when they download and open zip folders with freeware.

Therefore, you have to be careful about what kind of software you download and install on your computer. You can never know when a third party might exploit Iminent Toolbar to distribute malware.

  1. I have searched through Mozilla Firefox and Windows and have found nothing that says Iminent. There is no program and there is no extension or add-on. I have downloaded several anti-malware programs, including yours, and they have found nothing. However, on my facebook everytime I click to update my status the iminent minibar/toolbar pops up. The one that has a link to angry birds, android, etc. I have no idea how to remove this and am extremely frustrated and I need help.
