How to remove Delta Search

Author: Robert Pricop



Many users complain they have been tricked into installing third party toolbars that may overwrite default settings in their browsers such as the home page or the preferred search engine. We have tracked and identified the toolbars most commonly found on our users' computers and have devised a set of removal procedures.

Delta Search Toolbar is one of the most commonly found and aggressive toolbars. It comes bundled with other software that you might never use or find useful, such as MixiDJ and Browser Protect.

The program has been flagged as potentially unwanted because it changes your default search engine to delta-search.com, initiates browsing redirections, alters your search results and features numerous ads. It will also replace your home page with the Delta home page and add a toolbar to your browser.

Because of its behavior people tend to consider it malware, and are surprised that their antivirus software won’t remove it. However, technically the toolbar is not malware. Like other similar programs, it has to be uninstalled and the remaining traces need to be removed manually.

For this you will need to follow the instructions below: Uninstall Delta Search
