This article aims to help users remove Virus (also referred to as Start Iminent Virus) from Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari, as well as their respective system. Virus is quite invasive in its ways. It has been reported to quickly spread via various means and has affected many users already. It does not discriminate between Firefox, Chrome or IE – all popular internet browsers are equally affected. The most common place where users contract it is via bundles together with another free program. It can pose as a completely different type of file than it actually is, so be especially careful when on a torrent or a file storage site, because these can often be dangerous.

No matter which way it may have come to your doorstep, what is quite clear is you definitely need to remove it as fast as you can. As long as you tolerate its presence on your computer you are essentially exposing yourself to more potentially damaging viruses and other types of malware. One of the noticeable side effects of Start Iminent Virus is a significant slowdown of the affected device. This is due to the fact that the virus will run a scripted sequence loading pop-up advertisements or banners any time you open your web browser or whenever you try to open a new page while browsing. All this puts a heavier workload for your CPU and RAM to handle, it is not uncommon even two or three times bigger than what it was supposed to be under normal conditions. This can be considerably taxing, especially for older machines and can seriously hamper your system performance.

What to avoid when dealing with Start Iminent Virus

By most standards nowadays this is not a high priority threat to your security. This is mainly because the Ads in themselves will not directly cause any harm, but it is very important to realize that they very well may lead to more dangerous stuff if you are not aware what to do and especially not what to do when around them. That is not to say that virus is safe to have in any way – you should strive to uninstall it from your system as soon as possible. While you have it you shouldn’t click on the advertisements because often times they will lead you straight to shady websites riddled with other malicious software.

  • The only right way for you to interact with the ads is to close the pop-up, this is the safest course of action until you manage to remove Virus from your system.
