Delta Search virus, also known as Delta Search and Delta-search.com redirect, is a popular infection that keeps spreading around at this moment. Typically, it is categorized as a browser hijacker because it  alters computer's settings once it gets on its target PC and starts annoying redirections to delta-search.com or other sites that try to become more popular. In order to make you visit these domains against your will, Delta Search virus starts its activity with some changes made in computer's DNS settings, default search engine's settings and home page settings. It can be said that this virus affects all browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome) that are installed on the PC and finally makes you search the web using delta-search.com only. While it may seem for you that this domain is like a normal search engine, we don't recommend trusting it because it may track your browsing habits and return altered search results.


Delta Search virus is distributed similarly to other cyber infections. You can download this threat accidentally, together with freeware and shareware, or simply get it on your machine after entering infected site. However, you should know that malware or rogue anti-spyware can also install such browser hijacker on your computer, that's why we always recommend using automated methods for virus removal. Once this virus infects the system, it changes existing settings there. Typically, it modifies the settings of Internet browsers, home page and the default search provider. If you have also noticed these changes and suffer from annoying redirections to delta-search.com, you should check your PC for Delta Search virus. Do that without any delay in order to avoid getting infected with more serious infections.


If you think that you may be infected with this virus, check your computer with updated anti-spyware. We recommend running a full system scan with SpyHunter or STOPzilla and remove what it detects. Additionally, uninstall Delta Search from Add/Remove Programs list by following these steps: Click 'Start menu' -> 'Control Panel' -> 'Uninstall a Program' or 'Add/Remove Programs' and choose 'Uninstall' button if you see the Delta Search toolbar in the list. Finally, remove Delta-search.com from your browsers:

Internet Explorer:
Open IE -> Tools -> Internet Option -> General tab.Enter Google or other address to make it the default start page.

Mozilla Firefox:
Open Mozilla Firefox, go to Tools -> Options -> General -> Startup. Now select 'Show a blank page' when Firefox Starts or set a certain website, like Google or similar.

Google Chrome:
Open Google Chrome, click on wench icon, go to settings and choose 'Manage search engines'. Change search engine to google or other and delete Delta Search from the list. Then Go to section “On start” and make sure you get blank page while creating new tab.

still the delta search remained tagged to google chrome. It pops up first when google chrome browser is turned on inspite of spyhunter being there guarding the system
You need to uninstall delta chrome too, beside delta installation (Start->Control Panel ->Uninstall). And change all browser settings.
Go to hell, Delta Search. Your program adds itself without permission and is in fact malware. Ive manually removed it multiple times, and yet it keeps re-adding itself as my search provider.
I too have the same problem Ive already removed it using the add/uninstall and manually changed browser settings on Firefox and Chrome but its shown up again anyone who knows how to remove it permanently please tell me how.
dont forget to do the last step - in the onstart menu, it took a minute to find it but it solved the browser opening to delta over and over problem!

i innocently tried to load a pdf manual for my blender. i was excited and loaded the first google searched link. what a mistake!
if you need manuals - be sure to check that you are on the actual manufacturers webcyte!

thank you for posting this page. it took me about an hour - but i rid my computer of that nasty sneaky trickster!!!
shame on them for making their browser look like the google page.

thanks again!!
I wish and pray that the programmer of this malware will die from worst accident including his/her families and friends ! !! you re evil ! ! ! go to hell and meet your creator !

I recently experienced exactly the problem. My PC runs VISTA X64 Ultimate. One day I noticed Firefox and Google Chrome will no longer Restart from the previous shutdown. Searching around I was informed by Blogs such as this that I was attacked by Browser High-jacking Malware and noticed some unwelcome search toolbars were introduced around 17/04/13. One very bad sysmptom was it took over an hour to complete the normal Startup.
I followed the instructions to remove Delta Search and Babylon toolbar.
My experience was using Control Panel to remove Delta Search, I was left with the Condition that Windows Explorer will crash and restart again whenever I access a drive or a folder render it unusable unless reboot to Safe Mode or start the Command Prompt alias CMD.

I was lucky to boot to Safe Mode and used the VISTA Recovery Procedure to recover to a System prior to the Delta Search Removal.

My experience was Babylon toolbar was the real Highjacker, just guessing, it probably highjacked Delta Search as well. It is very safe to use Control Panel to uninstall Babylon toolbar BUT NOT DELTA SEARCH.

Just uninstalling Babylon Toolbar will be enough to stop the Redirecting of URL whenever Firefox or Chrome being re-started.
However, go direct to, in my case, C://Program(x64)/Delta Seach/ ... , eventually get to "Uninstall", the Delta Searchs own Uninstall Application and run it, at least for my own VISTA System, I was successfully get back to my previous Condition and the usual 10 Minute-ish Booting Up.

I hope the above might help someone in my unpleasant situation.
When making a conclusion you should not use the words maybe, just guessing, i think, etc. you should be sure not to confuse other people.
thank you
thanks for the information, I found this post really usefull.

Delta search can such my left testicle. This page is absolutely NO help whatsoever. Ive followed the instructions and still have the gormless pest that is delta search encrusted on my fucking computer. What an absolute joke.

wow...i know i had problems with my browser but 401 threats is a little much
My computer The Delta Search Toolbar Program uses over 19 GB of space when I was uninstalling it
i tried several options to remove delta , none of the above had any effect whatsoever except to waste my time , i did a system restore , not from last system restore but from an earlier restore point , this seems to have worked and i no longer get any bother from the SCUM that is detla toolbar .
I tried all the options recommended but nothing worked :(. Then I went to cnet download and searched for anit-virus software and found avast! Free antvirus software. The first thing it did was scan my computer and found threats, then allowed me to get rid of them. Then it said there was an issue with my browser and asked if it could clean browsers - and I selected yes and it did.

It removed about 4 items, one that appeared to be HP app (I have HP computer) and a few others that I didnt know what they were. When the removal process was complete, it allowed me to reset my browser to their default setting which I allowed.

I am back to Google with no Delta-Search redirects :).
