  1. Hey I've been having the same issue and have tried the same methods of removal, it just keeps popping up in my scans. It hasn't been doing anything at all since I had it, and I certainly didn't install any suspicious program or anything like at all. Seriously no pop ups or nothing, and my Malwarebytes detects 11 of these. I'm thinking this might be a false positive, nothing of sorts seems to remove it and nothing at all is happening.
  2. I have been attempting to remove three instances pup.optional.iminent (no 'a' on the end) for a few months to no avail. MBAM version: Package: 1.0.236 Update package: 1.0.3330 Definition version: Unknown, but up-to-date. I have followed the details guide to the letter - scan, sign out of Chrome, disable sync, erase synced content, remove items, etc. - it simply won't go away. I have even removed the "Web Data" file from the diretory yet it persists. I have run full scans on ALL drives and devices connected to my network. It's now got to a point where I've switched to Firefox simply to stop the nagging. Scanned all drives throughout PC and network Reinstalled MBAM Followed guides Checked with ADW (I believe that's the name - no detection) Scanned with Windows Security Centre (I believe that it's now considered acceptable to use that in conjunction with MBAM) I have four licences to renew in the next 100 days, and I'm looking at alternatives. I thought I might as well ask on here as I've read many posts and seen the friendly support provided. Any help would be appreciated.
