    thanks for the reply.
    hit the arrow......deleted everything other than google.
    the body of the page still opens up with something called"mji.dj" as my search engine instead of google.
    what do we do to replace this and get google in the body of the page??/

    Welcome.

    [​IMG] 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

    thanks for the replies
    the junkware removal tool wants to load more garbage into my computer than i have right now
    not interested in going forward.
    using IE...i have no problem.
    only problem is when i want to use mozilla...............search conduit takes over together with bing.
    i'll just stay with IE and google

    All three applications above will target conduit.

    To manually remove Delta Search follow these steps:

    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

    • 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.
