How to Remove delta search homepage from Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, computer?

Solved Answer




Delta Search homepage is a browser hijacker and it does change your homepage to www.delta-search.com (www.delta-homes.com). Once it entered into your computer, it changed lots of other browser settings, that why Delta-Search.com called the hijacker. Immediately remove delta-search.com from your computer once you know that it got installed onto your computer.

Usually, they do three changes into a browser:

  • Change the homepage
  • Change the Default search engine
  • Install a plugin into the browser which shows you Pop-ups Ads and redirect you to sponsor links

Mainly, it installs as a browser plugin into a browser. Once a plugin gets permission to install into a browser, that plugin can do everything easily into the browser that they want. Carefully grand permission to install any plugin next time.

Now my only problem is that when I open Mozilla, the thing STILL appears, but is nowhere to be found on my Laptop? I’ve seriously done everything and since this is the second time this has happened (I don’t even download anything or install anything from the internet) the first time was that qvo6 thing, and just as that disappeared I struggle with delta home.

      There are some points which you need to follow.
      1. Uninstall Delta-homes & all other unwanted programs from control panel.

      4. Reset Mozilla Firefox.
      That’s it.
      If you will follow all that steps in a right way, then you will get it solve.

    many thanks

    1. Try this one,
      First of all uninstall all the unwanted programs from control panel.

      1. Close Google Chrome.
      2. Now open following path.
      Press “window key + R” (Flag sign key + R), then you will get Run box.
      Copy following command as per your operating system.

      Copy below line if you have Windows XP.
      %UserProfile%Local SettingsApplication DataGoogleChromeUser Data
      Copy below line if you have Windows 7, 8, Vista.
      %UserProfile%AppDataLocalGoogleChromeUser Data
      3. Now find a folder named as “Default” and do rename that folder to “default.old”
      Open your google chrome, it must be fixed.

      If still persist then you must need to clean your registry.

      Then do the rename process once more.
      If you follow all the above steps in a right way, then you will definitely would be fixed.

  17. Cool Idea. Just step 1 has solved my problem. thanks to the whole entire family of techsupportall.com. Stay with the people who loves techs.

  18. I used both malware bytes and ms esentials with hijackthis but none could fix it. I then clicked on step #5 (Hitman Pro 64bit) and it gave a blue command prompt style window that really SCARED ME. I thought it erased all my bookmarks and passwords from my Chrome Profile.

    However, the issue is fixed and the annoying mysearch url is not coming up when launching Chrome. Thanks much for the fix – however it would be great to have a prompt window for users when they click on Hitman link.

  19. Thank you so much…
    my problem solved…this is an amazing site

    and thanks a lot to all the people on this site…

  22. I missed out the ‘Change Home page from preferences file’ part, just realised, but i don’t understand it. I am a computer noob 😛

  23. I’ve tried all of the steps before i found this and so when i found this i went over all of the steps and they have all been done but Delta is still here… I don’t know what more to do?

  24. Thanks :D; in Opera remove code link shortcut.

    (EN) Thanks: D at Opera have to modify the code of the shortcut, like in Firefox. Playing with the right mouse button shortcut icon and delete the shortcut code that follows the program access.

    1. Preference file location is
      Windows XP
      %UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
      Windows 7, 8, Vista
      %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

      You can open this preference file into notepad
      You can rename this preference file as (preference.old) then restart the google.com, it would be new one

  25. Removing from the system is one thing. It also adds itself to the browser shortcut! Just remove it from the target in each browser shortcut and thats all 🙂

    1. I think you did not perform all the mentioned steps in a right way, We recommend you to please do all the steps carefully, if will be facing any difficulty to performing the steps then you ask me any time.

  26.

  29. Wow ! Thank you so much, it’s been a long time a had this problem and now i’m free ! Thank you again !!!

  30. Hasn´t worked at all! The notepad document brings up no mention of delta, I´ve deleted it from Chrome setting countless times, it shows in no extensions and has successfully been uninstalled, and Malwarebytes finds nothing when I do a scan. Any ideas?

    1. Try these more steps, that would be definitely working in your case

      1. Please open this path
      %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
      2. In the default folder please find a file named as “Preferences“
      3. Just rename this file from “Preferences“ to “Preferences_old“
      4. Restart your Google chrome.
      5. Start Google Chrome, click on Settings icon (Located in very top right side of the browser), Under this menu find out and click on Settings after clicking on that you will appear a configuration page.

      6. In the same configuration page find a option named as “Open a specific page or set of pages” click on Set Pages, here you will appear the bunch of URL (Set pages), you have to delete all them and enter only one which you want to use as your home page.
      7. Again restart google chrome

      1. The gift that keeps on giving! Thanks, this worked for me!

        Great advise – I’ll never look at that Babylon rubbish again!

      2. I tried all the steps you mentioned above and also downloaded and scanned my pc with Malwarebytes but nothing helps.

  31. it worked thanks for firefox
    In the Firefox type this command in the address bar “about:config” and then hit enter
    After then you will get a popup on the browser asking for permission to open config page that comfirm that please use it carefull so please
    click on button named as “I’ll be carefully, I promise“.
    Now you will a configuration page with search option on the top, so please type “delta-search” into search bar, you will get the result.
    Replace all the string from “delta-serach” to “google”
    In the search result do double click on the all entries (related to delta search) one by one, and change them to “www.google.com”

    1. After trying many other solutions only this solution worked >>
      1. Right click on firefox shortcut > Properties
      2. In target option, remove url section having delta-homes info
      3. Open firefox, no more annoying delta-search

      Thanks !!
