    Thank you for posting this blog entry! I knew what to do for removal, but I was looking for more specific information on what registry keys to remove, so thanks for that!

    Even if you ''uncheck' the boxes, the application still installs Delta search. I now think the safest thing is to exit immediately any application offers these additional applications as part of their download. Just keep looking for another download that doesn't cheat by including this type of redirection software. Particularly as ''uninstall'' does not remove it.

    I did everything you said to do.  I did a search for the things in Steps 2 and 3 and NOTHING was found.  I still have the delta search for my home page.
    Any suggestions?

    Cheers for the info, Delta search has been driving me crazy. Making this kind of self replicating invasive software should be illegal.

    Many thanks Adam.

    Thank you Adam for you information, but… I still got a problem. Although I cannot find the files or registry keys you provide relevant to delta searchapplication the delta search engine still runs! It's annoying! I have also removed the delta engine as a default from the Chrome browser. Nothing! Any ideas?

    Thank you for your advice. However, I have a Dealta Search box but I cannot find any registry or applicaion from the list of control panel for SW removal. So I cannot delete it. It's like a virus hidden somwwhere in my PC. Thanks

    I did what you said, but could see nothing with Delta Search in the Uninstall Program section, so I uninstalled the whole GoogleChrome-which is where delta search had attached itself.  I no longer can use google chrome thanks to that rotten malware.  Hoping it works.  Hope they havent infected any other part of my computer.  Thank you.

    hope it worked. I have noticed that when I delete then reinstall google something always piggybacks on it that I don't want. Why is that? If I wanted it I would install it myself
