Delta Search virus

Delta Search is bundled with other free software that you download off of the Internet. Unfortunately, some free downloads do not adequately disclose that other software will also be installed and you may find that you have installed adware without your knowledge.

For example, when you install NowUSeeIt Player, you will also agree to change your browser homepage to www.delta-search.com.
Delta Search also modify the default search provider of your browser so that it first connects to http://search.delta-search.com or http://www.delta-search.com/, which then redirects you to Yahoo where it will display its ads. Last, but not least, this hijacker will install a desktop search button that when clicked on allows you to search directly from your desktop. Just like the browser search, this too will redirect you through sites under their control until eventually showing you the search results in Yahoo.

You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs, such as this Delta Search 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.

If you don’t need this folder any longer, you should delete it as it contains sensitive information.

  1. Delta-home-search virus or whatever established itself as my home page in google chrome yesterday. WINZIPPER by Taiwan Shui Mu Chih Ching Technology Limited downloaded into my download folder at about the same time. I was puzzled why MSE with current updates permitted it to occur. Thus I found Stephen Boots’ August 28, 2013 reply with link to http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-delta-search/ in MSE microsoft community. I followed the five step procedure therein and successfully removed the delta-home search virus. Thank you Stephen and thank you Stelian for your Malware Tips.

  2. Many Many thanks.. My anti virus (quick heal) couldnt remove this.. your blog helped me remove it…

  3. Latest is called “337 Games” and “SupTab”, so look for “337 Games” and “SupTab” under Add/Remove programs and uninstall.

  4. Ahh amazing! Thank you so much for your guide! I was lost before I found this :) stay awesome

  5. I was able to use AdwCleaner to get rid of Delta Search after suffering with it for months. It also resolved some other minor issues I was having with my internet browser. Bless you!

  6. Dear Stelian Pilici yesterday I downloaded Spyhunter It was saying it is pree. It detected a 1491 malicious files. While I clicked repair i received a message “To repair purchase is necessary”. I hardly removed it

  7. Thank you so much! It has been on my computer for a couple of months and this actually worked to get rid of it!

  8. That AdwCleaner actually worked! Stupid friggin’ Delta! Thank you so much. Thing was bothering me for a whole hour. -_-

  9. Hallelujah!

    STEP 3: Remove Delta Search redirect from your computer with AdwCleaner
    … was enough (at least by now) to clean up the stupid Delta Homes!
    Thanks a lot,
    ;-] AfgM

  10. Thank you so much! This worked perfectly. Now to deal with my kids who keep downloading stuff onto the laptop! Grrrr…wish there was software to deal with them!

  11. 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!

  12. Hello Ed,
    System Restore should work, however their is no real harm of running AdwCleaner, Malwarebytes and HitmanPro… These tools are 100% safe, and may find additional malware on your machine. With this in mind, it’s your choice!
    Stay safe! :D

  13. Thank you. Iam absolutely not a computer expert, and had some reservations on the list of infected files it threw up, but I ran a restore point, and then followed the instructions and……got rid of delta! Keep up the good work

  14. Thanks you so much. My problem got resolved. It took me 3 days to remove this annoying malware. your a God’s send keep it up

  15. I just don’t get people who create malicious programs like delta search. Why create something that is just going to frustrate and upset people? Thank God there are opposites to these people in the form of malwaretips. Just followed the instructions and now it’s gone! Many thanks

  16. Thanks very much. Your instructions were easy to follow and seem to have beaten this annoying malware.
    Thanks again :) x

  17. Hi Stelian,

    Thank you very very very very very very very very very very ……. much! it really helped me to remove this damned program. Actually it was the same with Aol Search as well. I removed Aol many months ago, but Delta Search came today with an other program what I even didn’t want to install. So agressiv…but now I think all is going on the old way. Thanks for you!

  18. Hey I did what you said and It got rid of the delta, But when i went to click on the malware programme my P.C told me that “but the certificate that the server presented has been revoked by its issuer. This means that the security credentials the server presented absolutely should not be trusted. 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?

  31. 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!

  32. 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?

  33. Couldn’t leave without saying a massive THANK YOU for taking the time to do this. Delta has been pissing me off for weeks now. Cheers mate

  34. 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! :)

    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.

  44. Hello Angelica,

    Click on Chrome menu button, then select Settings, and in the On Startup section, put the check mark on One the New Tab page.

    Let me know everything is working….

  45. 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!

  46. Thank you – your directions are excellent! I had most of it removed and with your help I removed the search engine and a few malware files. My browser is working great again! Thanks so much!!!

  53. Got that stupid malware this morning. It hacked my browsers, change the home and default search engines and blocked my Chrome from searching eventually.

    After carefully following the instructions in this page, I successfully removed everything that “virus” put and left in my system. Thanks!!

  54. 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!

  56. Thanks so much!!! Delta Search is finally gone. What would you use as the best computer protection, so this doesn’t happen again?

  57. 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!

  58. THANK YOU!!!!!! Saved me from endless hours of cursing and looking at crappy blinking ads!

  61. 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!

  73. 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.

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

  75. 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).

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