    Iminent virus

    Iím usually very careful about downloading but recently got a virus Ė Iminent -- that prevents installation of all software: upgraded Norton 2013, Acronis TI 23013, Malwarebytes, etc. and get error codes on all [see attachment]. It doesnít appear anywhere in Programs, Revo Uninstaller, etc. but I still canít download and yesterday it popped up again on the monitor. I have Norton Internet Security, Malwarebytes, Norton Power Eraser, Hitman Pro and Kaspersky TDSSKiller, most of which I run everyday. Having to do a complete clean install of Windows 7 is frightening. Your help will be greatly appreciated. ellen

    Boot into safemode and rerun Malwarebytes.

    I'm not seeing anything that would indicate the above (Iminent) is a virus, more like adware and redirect BHO objects.
    So check your browser's add-ons area for this and disable it.

    However, I would still boot into safe mode with networking, and preform a full scan with an updated MBAM in the event you do have
    something yet identified.

    When it comes time to run Malwarebytes, run it in safe mode as Clint suggested.
