How can Delta-Homes.com hijack my computer?
Delta-homes.com browser hijacker is one of these potentially unwanted programs that are spread using bundling. This distribution technique has been discussed by various security researchers. However, it's still legitimate and allowed. If you want to avoid it, you need to be careful when installing freeware on your computer. Make sure that you double check installation of Softonic, Babylon Toolbar, uTorrent, Any.Do, BeeLine Reader, Foxit Reader and similar freeware. While people can set this page as their start page and/or the default search engine consciously, in most of the cases they are tricked into installing this program as an optional component of the freeware. For avoiding this and other unplanned downloads (Conduit, www-searching.com, mystartsearch.com, v9.com, sweet-page.com, mystart, websearch.fixsearch.info, genieo.com, etc.), there is one thing that you should remember: you MUST choose Custom/Advanced installation method when installing freeware from questionable developers. In addition, check what additional components it offers and opt out of unknown search engines, add-ons, extensions, toolbars, etc. If you are looking at a pre-checked sentence that says 'Make Delta-homes.com my start page' or 'Make Delta-homes.com my default search engine', you should uncheck it. Of course, having a reputable anti-spyware that could warn you about the infiltration of such suspicious programs is also recommended..
