  • Sara says:

    Ok, I think I’ve cracked it after 2 weeks of mucking about and realising I’d missed bits. To remove delta completely from your computer you have to go through everything with a fine tooth comb :/. Start with installing it from your computer programmes, then head to google chrome and go to the 3 lines in the top left select tools and then extensions and delete delta. Then to settings and Delta will of changed itself to default for most things, change the setting back to original one by one and delete the delta option rather than just deselecting it. I cant remember for sure cause i started my vendetta against Delta a while ago but double check the advanced settings to for any traces and your downloads. Hopefully I’ve not missed anything and this should do the trick. Good luck :)

    slows down my PC

  • Sabrina says:

    …..Delta search needs to get off of my laptop.

  • Eleanor says:

    Delta search is annoying as F*ck all these advertisements popping out of nowhere

  • Jeremy says:

    This does not get rid of it however, if you click on chrome and Delta Search appears….right click on the chrome Icon and opoen a new browser. It will not be delta search. Then go close out the delta search icon and work through the browser you just opened. After you have one browser open you can continue to open new ones in chrome and they will not be delta search browsers. Sorry, this is just a work around as I can not figure out how to delete the program either.

  • Gary says:

    Delta, Babylon, AVG search. I uninstalled these programs to no avail. I hit google chrome…….@#$ dam $&*%!!!ing thing is still there
    I uninstalled Chrome, reinstalled Chrome and same as before, AVG secure search, Babylon, Delta. They do not show up in my control panel anymore(add or remove programs), so there is nothing to click for uninstall. Vicious circle. I wont be happy till i’m dead with these A$$ hole programs following right behind me. GRRR!!!

  • elaine says:

    how do i get rid of delta search?

  • Fake says:

    go to tools (if on Mozilla) then go to options, set your homepage as your desired page, then hit ok. Now you will want to go to control panel then uninstall a program. look for things that have delta on it ex, delta search or delta toolbar. if you see those, remove them!!! that fixes everything except for when you open a new tab it will be delta search, just dont use it go to google or whatever. i will come back when i find a cure.

    I need to remove Delta search

  • Darryl Watson says:

    I want to get rid of Delta Search without yet picking up another virus in my attempt to get rid of this insidious scam.

  • JP says:

    Delta won’t go away and none of these Spy/Malware Hunters or even Norton can find it. I’m getting serious performance issues, constant feeling of being watched by it, and so many adverts popping up it lags the system. I feel like I’ve tried everything to get rid of Delta and ALL associated problems and none of it works. At this point I wouldn’t be much surprised of a Trojan was at the source of it.

    The Internet is becoming completely useless because of the hackers. We need STANDARDS. Standard terms and conditions, standard downloads, and standard ID. I can omly HOPE you’re honest.
