Thanks for the tip how to remove this malicious pest from my Registry!

Tip: I had already succeeded in deleting all Iminent files and directories I could find. They were all protected and could not be deleted by Explorer or the command line. So I rebooted in Safe Mode and the Explorer could then search and I deleted them.

Then you have to go and change all browser start pages back to your preferred page since Iminent has probably hijacked them. What a vile piece of crap this is. Thanks for your service in controlling it.

Umbrella.exe must also be removed, otherwise Iminent will keep coming back. AVGFree and MalwareBytes did not detect it for me, though I did not try Anvisoft.
To remove Umbrella.exe:
1. Open Task Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE) and Kill all instances of Umbrella.exe
2. Delete the folder Program Files > Common Files > Umbrella

Hi Having unistalled etc When I search for the word Iminent in the registry of my Windows 8.1 computer in addition to them being in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Iminent
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Iminent

It also appears in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Low Rights\Elevation Policy\(68B81....
and a couple of other Elevation Policy Keys
Should I remove these as well ?
I am not at all confident in registry editing so won't take any chances.

Thanks

To completely remove Iminent from your PC, you must uninstall the main program from the Windows Control Panel (Iminent Client and the Toolbar):
Click "Start> Control Panel> Programs and Features (in W7) or Add or Remove Programs (in XP)"
Right click on "Iminent Client" on and select "Uninstall"
Follow the instructions
Follow the same procedure for the "Iminent Toolbar".


Note that:Your home page and default search engine have been changed to RepON, don't forget to revert them.
For Firefox, you must remove the Iminent add-in:
Go to "Tools> Add-In".
Click "Remove" to the right of "IMinent Toolbar".
