I can't remove Delta Search Engine or Toolbar, and I've deleted them from my control panel, reset Firefox, removed the Extentions, and changed the auto:config.
I've done everything! I've tried everything, and it seems to work at first. But when I close Firefox and then re-open it later, there Delta is, and I have to redo what I did before. It just keeps replacing itself! I have McAfee, but it hasn't done anything or even detected a problem. What should I do? I REALLY want this off my computer.

If you do not keep changes after a restart, see:
Go to control panel. Uninstall BrowserProtect or similar program (run anti-malware scan to identify them). Then repeat resetting browser . Delta Search installs programs that restores browser settings even when plugin is uninstalled. Here a video on how to find that program.
Make sure to close any affected browsers during uninstall, and right after that scan with MBAM then AdwCleaner. Another Warning is that Adwcleaner will auto-reboot your computer, which is a safe thing to do now. After that, hopefully Delta is gone from everywhere, even regedit.

Link to "Remove Delta-search,com Redirect (Delta Search Engine and Toolbar)" page at deletemalware.blogspot,com removed by moderator. The guide links to a malware removal tool that starts a SpyHunter-Installer.exe download. Enigma Software's SpyHunter is a questionable product that may be difficult to uninstall. The "free" scanner only detects malware and requires payment before malware is actually removed. (ref. 1 ... ref. 2)
And also scan your computer with AdwCleaner.

by using sites like Cnet and Softpedia to install programs is how you get Delta Search and other malware, a good replacement is snapfiles.com
I was able to get rid of mine. It was an unwanted add-on! Simple to delete! Go to Tools then Add-ons.
I got rid of it first, uninstalling with control panel, any programm from "conduit" and all suspicious names and then runing Adwcleaner. I had to run it twice (!) to complete the job.
