Removing Delta Search, Chrome, Firefox, UC Browser

Last updated on August 24th, 2013 at 02:49 pm

I installed UC Browser for PC on Windows 7. I supposed Windows 8 should be the same. After installing, I don’t find any UC Browser for PC on my desktop or taskbar. uc-browser-for-pc-computer

That is not the point. What has bothered web user the most is UC Browser for PC has hi-jacked your browsers. Causing Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer change to default Delta Search as homepage or start up page.

Additionally, the software bundles with Web-Cake 3.00 and Optimizer Pro v3.0. Again, there are alien to me. Not making me feel comfortable.

Not sure if there are malware or whatever-ware. Certainly, not please to see and a dislike for one who has accustomed to Google Search as default.
