Not sure what this is, but from what I gather on the web, it isn't good. I am running Windows 7. Today when I booted up, I got the warning that 'Iminent has stopped working'. Now, I didn't know I had Iminent at all...so I went to add/remove programs and tried to uninstall. It errored out saying it was already uninstalled. Next thing I tried to open a pdf and adobe popped up an error saying 'Raise without handler'. Clearly I have something going amiss here. I just checked my program files and there is an iminent file there. I left it untouched at present.

 

I would appreciate any help in tracking down this issue before something does more damage. Many thanks.

Thanks for the prompt reply, I apologize for taking awhile to get back here.

 

I am running waterfox, maybe that's the reason but the run command for firefox did not work. Though I don't use IE I reset it. Adware cleaner has taken care of Imminent (it has not reappeared after a couple of reboots), and my pdf file is now working properly, as well. Should I still post the requested logs?

 

thanks again,

mystal

If all's good then I guess not. Check that your Adobe reader and Java (if using) are up to date.

Empty your temp folders using TFC (Temporary File Cleaner)
  • Please download TFC by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.
    alternate download link
  • Save any unsaved work. (TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!)
  • Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. (If you are using Vista, right-click on the file and choose "Run As Administrator".)
  • Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway allowing Windows to load normally (not into Safe Mode) to ensure a complete clean.
