Delta Homes is a well known search site that is mostly promoted with the help of freeware and shareware. Yes, you can set this page as your start page and/or default search engine consciously but we don't recommend that. That's because of the following issues that we will try to reveal in this post. Nevertheless, in most of the cases people install this program with its components without realizing that because its developers have been using a deceptive distribution technique, which is known as bundling. For more information about Delta Homes distribution, you should check the second paragraph of this post.
Once user is tricked into installing related freeware, Delta-Homes.com drops its own browser add-on on each of web browsers, including IE, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and other web browsers. In addition, it installs Search Protect application that prevents the removal of this program and protects altered browser's settings. Finally, it sets itself as the start page, the default search engine and a new tab page. After all these changes are done, you may find out that avoiding Delta-homes.com browser hijacker is not an easy task because it shows up as soon as you start your browsing. We do NOT recommend ignoring this and using this search engine for your browsing because you may notice that its search results are not identical to the ones that are displayed by other search sites. In other words, they are altered because this is a commercial search engine that seeks to promote its affiliate parties. Here, we must say that, technically, this program is not a virus. However, if you need to prevent redirects to Delta-Homes.com, corrupted search results, slow downs on each of your web browsers and similar issues, you should remove this browser hijacker. Beware that it has been spreading in a bundle with other components, such as Search Protect, that may prevent its removal. That's why we recommend you opting for automatic removal of Delta-Homes.com. For that you can use SpyHunter. If you don't know how to install its program and use it for the removal of unwanted app, check this post: SpyHunter tutorial.

Otherwise, you may notice redirects to Delta-Homes.com right after rebooting your computer.
As we have said, Delta-homes.com virus is distributed with the help of freeware and shareware. 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.), you should remember that you MUST choose Custom/Advanced installation method when installing freeware from questionable developers.
