Remove Delta Search (Uninstall Guide)

Delta is a program that offers a web search engine (delta-search.com) and toolbar which are being promoted via other free programs, and once installed on your computer, they will hijack your browser homepage and replace your default search engine.
Futhermore, this program will display ads and sponsored links in your search results, and may colect search terms from your search queries.
[Image: Delta Search and toolbar]
Delta Search got on your computer after you have installed another free software or add-on that had bundled into their installer this browser hijacker.
For example, when you install MixiDj, you’ll also install the Delta Search, set your browser homepage to delta-search.com and change your default search engine to http://delta-search.com.
However, when you uninstall vShare from your computer, your web browser’s default settings will not be restored. This means that you’ll have to remove Delta Search from your favorite web browser manually.

[Image: Delta Search setup process]

You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs, such as this browser hijacker. Be very careful what you agree to install. Always opt for the custom installation and deselect anything that is not familiar, especially optional software that you never wanted to download and install in the first place. It goes without saying that you should not install software that you don’t trust.

  • Sameeh Allulu

    Thank you

    Helpful post

  • Riaan Eloff

    Hi,
    Thanks for this post and the recommended software. The points you mentioned removed Deltasearch, but only partially. I continued to recieve (every minute or two) a popup that said: “An attempt has been made to change your browser homepage”, which I would have to close every few minutes.
    I then continued with this tutorial and used the ADwCleaner, and must admit, it appears to have worked like a charm. No more popus, and no more opening my browser and finding deltasearch as an open tab.
    Thanks again for this!

  • srp

You may be communicating with an attacker” But when i try any other website, Facebook, google, Amazon, the same message shows up. Can you help me out?

    thank you so much for this. everything is now back to normal..but i did not run a computer scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is it necessary?

    • http://malwaretips.com/ Stelian Pilici

      Hello Anne,
      The Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and HitmanPro scans will not take more than 30 minutes to complete, and they may detect additional malware.
      I highly recommend that you perform these two scan, just to be on the safe side!
      However, if you do not have the time or do not wish to do them, you can skip them, as they are meant as a “double-check” steps.

      Stay safe!

    Thanks for that, but when I download ADW Cleaner norton tells me there is malware in the download…

    • http://malwaretips.com/ Stelian Pilici

      Hello Dave,
      AdwCleaner uses advanced detection techniques and some antivirus products may detect it as malware. Nevertheless, this product is clean and safe. You can search online, and I’m sure you’ll see that it got a great reputation.

      Anyway, the Delta Search should be removed after the second step… so if you really do not wish to run this program, you can just skip it.

      Stay safe! :)

        Thanx a lot, saved me a lot of time, gave a google +1

  • http://malwaretips.com/ Stelian Pilici

    Hello James,
    No, you can use “Open a specific page or set of pages”, I have recommended “Open New Tab” because is the default option in Chrome.

    To use Open a specific page or set of pages: Click Set pages and enter the web addresses of the pages you want to see, also if there is delta-search.com or any other unwanted page, make sure to remove it from the list.

  • Tamsin

    YAY! IT ACTUALLY WORKED!! Thanks for that.

    Hello,
    Yes of course! I recommended the Quick scan so that you’ll save time. however the full scan is more comprehensive, so if you have the time, go ahead!

  • Clark Kent

    As the other comments, this is another thanks! ^_^
    Delta infected all my browsers and their search engines.
    So glad that there’s more than one program willing to help!
    Even though this page was written just 5 months ago, it might need a bit of updating with the screenshots, because those scan programs seem to already offer new versions.

    One last thing, for some reason, Hitmanpro said “0 threats detected” but said “threats detected 664″ right below that. This was right after I fully scanned with AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes Anti-malware. There seems to be no trace of Delta left in any of my browsers or engines. Is there something else I still need to do to be exactly 100% rid of Delta?

    Other than that, seems this article has helped solve everything.
    Thanks again so much!

    Thank you so much. I’m normally good about not downloading crap, but I wasn’t paying much attention when I ended up with Delta search. A check on google lead me here, and the problem was quickly solved. I’ve also used the ADWCleaner on my parent’s computer in order to clear them up. Apparently they were chalk full of crap slowing them down. This really helped, thank you!

  • pk a name

    Delta search won’t be removed. IT’S NOT IN THE ADD ONS!!! NOWHERE TO BE FOUND, I removed everything “delta” related (everything dl’d the same day) from PROGRAMS and it’s still there. I use Moz FFox and it’s there but I can switch to google no problems. IE defaults to delta I ran a MSE scan but MBAM picked up the viruses, quarantined and I removed them, rebooted twice and yet Delta won’t be removed. Any tips? Do not ask me to download anything more, my machine is way too slow/old and can’t handle it. I have CCleaner, would that help? I deleted LSOs and still there. HELP!

    Hello Bonviveur,

    Tracking cookies are harmless, however if you want to remove them, you can run Temp File Cleaner to remove those cookies.

    1.You can download the TFC utility from the below link

    TFC DOWNLOAD LINK : http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/TFC.exe

    2.Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista or 7, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).

    3. This utility will close all programs when it will be started, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.

    4.Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.

    5.Once it’s finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.

  • ihatedeltasearch!!ugh

    it works! make sure to do the malware scan, i ended up finding other problems too!

  • Pesho

    Thank you! Im not very skilled with software issues, removing of malwares, viruses etc., but this guide is written in very plain and simple way and i did remove Delta (Delta-Search) by my own.

    I didn’t even knew i was infected because Delta has never “shown”, i mean my browsers start pages were fine. I just decided to check in “Search” of my computer for keyword “Delta” and i found it. Also my Internet Explorer star page was changed (i didn’t know because i don’t use it).

  • Gillian Holmes

    Thank you I manged to remove it myself last time but this time it really had it’s claws in. Gone now.
