    Thanks for your great blogs, very useful information. I had to update firefox recently and when I did I got all sorts of piggy backing malware with delta search taking over. Did a Norton scan last night and am back with IE. Now I’m trying to get rid of web search on IE and have deleted some of the links you suggested (discovered one called babylon which I believe is hooked up with delta. Certainly learning a lot about my computer as I go through this exercise.
