    Delta toolbar / Delta homes [IMPORTANT]

    Recently more and more people get infected with this 'looks like nothing serious' piece of malware. Do not let that fool you, it is supposed to be hard to notice and after noticing, it is supposed to make you think it is nothing dangerous at all.

    How to know if I am infected?

    That is pretty simple, open any web browser on your PC and check the address of the website that automatically opens. If it contains the word 'delta' (usually
    Opening those links is not recommended! delta-toolbar.com or Delta Homes
    ). If the address is different (or is not there at all) then you are most likely not infected by this nasty piece of malware.

    How to get rid of it?

    Download and run adwcleaner. It should clean your PC from the infection in most cases. If you are not sure how to use it or think that it didn't help, please reply in this thread.

    Okay, but why should I even bother?

    Most people say "It only sets my homepage, I can live with that". Sure you can. Although, the way this malware operates (hidden, embedded in browser and hard to get rid of) suggests that it has more goals than simply annoying you. It might as well steal your passwords and credit card numbers, along with other data you store on your PC. This is not confirmed, but do you really want to find it out on yourself, especially that removing this crap takes max 15 minutes?

    How to not get infected?

    When installing software from the internet, download it only from official sources. When installing, always select 'advanced installation' mode (if present) and deselect all checkbox mentioning installing 3rd party software (browser toolbars and 'pc boosters' mostly, in most cases you don't want those on your PC, trust me). This does not prevent all infections but will surely reduce them to a minimum.

    +rep if helped :P

    Pfft I have chrome without any toolbars and my only extension is adblock. People should really use a superior browser if they don't want to get malware.

    Easy to say. I use chrome. I did not install ANYTHING for a month now, earlier only reliable programs from official websites. Yet, yesterday this very malware showed up on my pc. Probably went through teamviewer...

    i am also a victim of delta homes. It takes over my IE homepage somehow, but i even did not even install anything last month. Luckily i get rid of this nasty browser hijacker with the help of an delta homes removal antivirus called iSafe free virus removal tool
    So l would like to share it here to see if it helps^^
    The only question is that how did delta homes virus appear on my laptop even i did not install anything before?
