    This program hides on your computer after installing itself against your permission. It claims to be from "Microsoft Corporation". It sits in the background and repeatedly sets your browser homepage to delta-search.com, which is a rip-off of google which even looks exactly identical. The program is hard to remove as it actively tries to prevent you from deleting it.

  • THREATrating from user Evening out MikeOne (Variant: 18265485)

    Rewrites code, reinstalls itself, lies about its origins (not Microsoft), and hijacks browsers and search engines. How could that be anything but a threat?
