I installed a program and it would only install with Delta Search. I reset my homepage to Google but whenever I open a new tab it takes me to the search for Delta, help?

Chosen solution

I have a solution after finding zero help online, i decided to do it myself and found it was profoundly easy.

type in "about:config" in the url

accept "ill be careful i promise"

type in "new tab browser"

find the delta search bogus garbage and double click the url link.

replace it with what ever you like, google, yahoo, about:blank, after that everything should be the way it was.

your welcome

I had a three-fold process to delete it:

In Chrome, go to "the three bars", otherwise known as Customize and control Google Chrome. Then,

 1) under Extensions, make sure you disable and delete Delta 
 2) under Settings, in the subsection, On startup, the third bullet is "Open a specific page or set of pages" and, beside that, click the hyperlink that says, "Set pages". Hit "X" to cancel Delta.

In your Control Panel,

 3) use the Uninstall to get rid of the software.

Good luck! :)

Although going to "about:config" and replacing the Delta newtab URL with "any other site" (thank you), I really wanted it to return to the 3 column - 3 row tab site. So, once the URL became replaced by that about:config line with "browser.newtab.url," I further right-clicked on that line and clicked "reset." Voila, the default Firefox 23.0.1 returned to that 3/3 default state. Nothing else was deleted or changed as I remained in Firefox - clicked the "+" tab and all was well!

(See my recent reply to VINDAVER) When I went to Uninstall before I found the solution I entered a moment ago, I, too, tried to uninstall. But my version of Windows 7, would not show a "Delta..." line! After using Malwarebytes, I got rid of most of it - but the "Delta Tab" still remained until all this "about:config" was employed.
