Welcome.

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
Download AdwCleaner from here to your desktop
Run AdwCleaner and select Delete



Once done it will ask to reboot, allow this
On reboot a log will be produced at C:\ADWCleaner[XX].txt please post it in your next reply.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here.

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
Extra Note:

If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediatly.

All three applications above will target conduit.

To manually remove Delta Search follow these steps:

STEP 1 : Uninstall Delta Search from your computer

Delta Search has installed several programs on your computer which we will need to uninstall if present.
  • To uninstall Delta Search program from your computer, click the Start button, then select Control Panel, and click on Uninstall a program.
  • If you are a Windows 8 user, you can right-click on a bottom left hot corner (formerly known as the Start button) and select Control panel from there, then select Uninstall a program.
  • Seach and uninstall Delta Chrome Toolbar, Delta toolbar, Yontoo, BrowserProtect and Mixi.DJ from your computer if present.

STEP 2 : Remove the Delta Search residual damage from your browser

Delta Search has installed a browser extension developed by Montera Tehnologies, has changed your homepage to delta-search.com, and has changed your default search engine.

Remove Delta Search from Internet Explorer
  • Remove Delta Search add-ons from Internet Explorer.
  • When you uninstall Iminent for Internet Explorer from your computer, the Iminent add-ons should be automatically removed from Internet Explorer, however we need to check if they were uninstalled.
  • Open Internet Explorer,then click on the gear icon [Image: Internet Explorer gear icon] (Tools for Windows XP users) at the top (far right) and then select Manage add-ons.
  • Internet Options in IE
  • From the Toolbars and Extensions tab, select Delta Toolbar, Delta Helper Object, and Yontoo add-ons, and click on Disable.
  • [Image: Delta Search Internet Explorer addons]
  • Set Internet Explorer default search engine from Delta Search (delta-search.com) to Bing.
  • To change your default search engine, click on the gear icon [Image: Internet Explorer gear icon] , select Manage Add-ons, and then, under Add-on Types, click Search Providers.
  • Select Bing and on click the Set Default button.
  • To remove delta-search.com from Internet Explorer, select Delta Search and click on Remove.
  • [Image: Delta Search Internet Explorer redirect virus removal]
  • Change your Internet Explorer homepage from delta-search.com to its default
  • To change your homepage, click on the gear icon [Image: Internet Explorer gear icon] , select Internet Explore options, and in the General tab,under the Home page section, click on Use default to restore Internet Explorer default home page.

Remove Delta Search from Mozilla Firefox
  • Remove Delta Search extensions from Internet Explorer.
  • At the top of the Firefox window, click the orange Firefox button, then select Add-ons.
  • Firefox addon menu
  • Select the Extensions tab, then remove Delta Toolbar, Mixi.DJ and Yontoo extensions from Mozilla Firefox.
  • Reset your default search engine and home page from delta-search.com to their default.
  • To reset your search engine and homepage to their default, we will use the SearchReset extension.This add-on is very simple: on installation, it backs up and then resets your search preferences and home page to their default values, and then uninstalls itself. This affects the search bar, URL bar searches, and the home page.
  • You can download SearchReset from the below link, and then we will just need to install it to revert Firefox to its default settings.
  • SEARCHRESET DOWNLOAD LINK (This link will open another web page from where you can download the SearchReset Firefox extension)

Remove Delta Search from Google Chrome
  • Remove Delta Search extensions from Google Chrome.
  • Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu button on the browser toolbar, select Tools and then click on Extensions.
  • In the Extensions tab, remove (by clicking on the Recycle Bin) the Delta Toolbar, Mixi.DJ and Yontoo extensions from your Google Chrome.
  • Set Google Chrome default search engine from Delta Search to Google.
  • Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu button, then select Settings and click on Manage search engines in the Search section.
  • In the Search Engines dialog that appears, select Google and click the Make Default button that appears in the row.
  • Search for Delta Search in the Search Engines list, and click the X button that appears at the end of the row.
  • [Image: Delta Search Chrome redirect virus removal]
  • Change Google Chrome homepage from delta-search.com to its default.
  • The Delta Search has modified your Google settings to open their webpage whenever you start your browser, so we will need to revert this change.
