Category: Browser Hijackers is a search engine presented by the Iminent Start Search. As you may know, this tool often accompanies different Iminent programs, including free smileys or the Iminent Toolbar. If you have downloaded these onto your Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers, you must have been informed about the offered browser settings modifications. Unfortunately, many computer users pay little attention to the installation processes of desirable software which leads to the installation of potentially unwanted programs. Do you want to delete from your web browsers? Our researchers have analyzed the threat and produced this thorough report.

Some security researchers can categorize as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because it can take over your browsers after you install software which the search tools are bundled with. Despite this, the search engine is just a browser plugin which you can attach or remove from your browsers whenever you want it. The question is – should you trust as a regular search engine? It has been discovered that Iminent works together with third parties which may use cookies to collect information about your browsing activity and then use the data to present you with adverts.

Online advertisements can be presented in various different ways. Without a doubt, the most annoying of them are the pop-up advertisements and the supported search results which may present links to promotional content websites. Note that you may also discover hidden in-text ads or flashy banner promotion. Unless your operating Windows system is protected by reliable automatic malware detection and removal software, you should not click on these advertisements because they could link you to unreliable websites. Note that additional links found within these secondary sites could even route you to corrupted websites and enable malicious scams.

Even if you keep your operating system protected by authentic security tools and you ignore the presented advertisements, you still should remove from your browsers. The search engine redirects your searches to Yahoo search, and so running it is worthless. You can follow the manual removal instructions below to get rid of the undesirable search tool from your web browsers. Additionally, you should ensure that reliable automatic malware detection/removal software is installed on the PC. This is the only way to ensure that your virtual privacy cannot be illegally breached in the future.
