Yhs delta search has infected my IE, as well as Firefox. I tried to reset the homepage, but this redirect still happens whenever I open a new tab. I tried to uninstall and reinstall Firefox, but this did not fix the problem! Any brilliant suggestions? If you have the same question and are seeking for a valid solution to get rid of yhs delta search, keep reading this article, from where you can get the answer.

Yhs.delta-search.com is a variant of dealt-search.com. See Delta-search.com removal guide here.

How did you get this hijacker overtaking your browser?

Things often go like this: freeware developers usually bundle their programs with toolbars and web domains installation, and show user agreement of installing some toolbars, and make yhs.delta-search their browser default search provider in IE, FF and Chrome. Such installation can be easily avoided if only the user is an attentive person. Yet, in most cases, users are so unaware of such option, which accidentally brings about yhs.delta-search. Furthermore, some even can’t recall the operation, and treat it as a malware invasion.

Yhs.delta-search.com is a new variant of delta search redirect virus. The mainscreen of yhs.delta-search.com is similar to that of delta-search.com, only with a very tiny difference: the former has a logo located right in the middle of the screen. Below is a screenshot of yhs.delta-search.com. See for your reference.
