How do I remove Iminent toolbar?

Iminent is a browser extension that claims to make browsing and social networking more fun by adding emoticons, animations, games, text effects and a personalized homepage. It comes bundled with third-party software and is installed without your permission, changing your home page and search engine. In addition, Iminent displays ads and sponsored links, and may collect search terms from your searches. If you don't use this toolbar, there's no need to have it and you should remove it.

In some cases, a ‟bad” add-on can’t be removed directly via the browser menu, because removal is blocked by an add-on protector. Avast Browser Cleanup will let you know if this is the case and help you through the process.


How do I recognize that an ‟Iminent” add-on has been installed on my browser?
