Hey, download HitmanPro, its a really good virus removal software from Google. Download it for free, run a scan, then click "Free 30 Day Trial" (or else the program wont remove the files for you, and its a pain to do on your own). After that, youll get a prompt to reboot your comp and then the files should be gone. Hope that helps!

(PS, it has to be Hitman as I tried my other anti-virus programs and they didnt detect anything)
I dont know what to do anymore, I just cant get rid of it.
Tried everything I found online. Im desperate & its getting on my nerves.
remove delta search from my system please
Why dont you just give the removal instructions here you friggin douchebag.
Delta Search
As a member of the Delta Search Support Department, I am happy to answer any questions you have. The removal of our Search program is actually quite easy. Please send me an email at [email protected] and I will send you the removal instructions.
PS - Within Firefox delete the add on, change home page back to whatever you use..

ALSO, do not click on the pop up after removing some of the registry entries that states something to the effect "A program is requesting to change your browser settings. Keep your current settings?"

Upon initial disabling and removal of the add on within Firefox and some of the registry entries using JV16 PowerTools as noted above, this popped up.

Clicking yes will reinstall the thing..

So I recommend to remove all of the registry entries as stated above first, then reboot and open browser. I believe the add on will no longer even be there.

ok, thats all I know...Kind regards


This jerk above from the company requesting you email him for instructions...scumbag.
Out of curiosity I went to their site. They ask you download undoubtedly another virus for removal..

I dont know how these idiots make money doing this or why it is worth their time, but GET A F**KING LIFE !!

To remove.

It is attached to Browser Protect, another virus you will have installed with it.
I got this by downloading subtitles for a movie, foolishly and against my better judgement.

Anyway, get these. I have researched all of this stuff and they are the best around. Trust me.

IO BIT Uninstaller - This uninstalls and will FORCE uninstall of all programs on your machine PLUS delete all of the registry files associated with the program. It is very good.

..PS> I also use and recommend IO Bit Smart Defrag...real time defrag. It is very good and comes highly recommended. I like their software so much I downloaded and use also their malware program...fwiw

CCLEANER - the steadfast and solid computer cleaner which I have always used..their registry cleaner did pick up remaining traces of the programs Active X portion...but I did run it before IOBit so perhaps IoBit would have taken them also...nevertheless, if you get one cleaner, make it this one.

Lastly, the last freee version of JV16 PowerTools. - Cannot recall the version at the moment, but it is well known and always suggested amongst experts. USE WITH EXTREME CAUTION...but it is very safe and backs up everything you do. Simply use common sense. Goto Registry Cleaner, Anything you do not recognize, right click on it for entry details. All I did not recognize were google chrome, and Delta related items. Then run the cleaner.

A red dot beside means it should not be removed. Green means ok, but use common sense. If you scroll across, even those in red shown after IOBit Removal were actually files related to Delta. Delete them.

AFter all is good, delete the backups.

that is all.
These are the best programs around. I research thigns very thoroughly, and do keep a level head about these things and try and ignore all teh talk on everyone has an opinion and suggests software, etc...but these are genuinely the best.

I never write comments online, but hope this helps others.
I hate this crap from these people....

Best regards
This Introduction seems great, but it doesnt work yet. Everytime I open a new Tab, it goes to delta search website, and i couldnt manage to stop that.
