Thank you for your informative steps. I was able to uninstall all but the Delta toolbar. When I try to uninstall it has the pop-up you mentioned "Please notice! When you installed Delta we changed your default serach provider, hompage and new tab to http://www.delta-search.com/. If you wish to remove them please visit this page: instructions page" then has a Close button. As instructed I hit the close button but the Delta toolbar doesn't uninstall. Can you help?

Hi,

If you are still unable to uninstall the bitguard and delta chrome toolbar, I highly recommend you use Revo Uninstaller to remove the program from
your computer.

It will forcely uninstall any unwanted program from your computer.

When removing SearchGOL from Firefox you also have to remove it from the new tab setting:

in about:config page find: browser.newtab.url or do a search for SeachGOL, double click the item and change the path to what you want.
