    Hi All, what's up?

    I lent a notebook to a priest and got it back a year later. With a Thai keyboard (I'd like the original Thinkpad keyboard back as it's great). There more crapware on it than I ever encountered. Used Malwarebytes, CC Cleaner, Spybot, Anti-Virus programs... Just the Delta-Homes malware remains.

    It's pushing ads whenever a new window is opened. A Google search for anti malware? Instead, their spam will get displayed. Mc Afee features prominently in the spam, BTW. Weird, can't see them sponsoring this kind of bs. Can you?

    I think Delta-Homes uses Baidu to get into the computer. I don't remember much as to how I deleted it. I did it manually. Might have uninstalled and reinstalled my browsers as well as manually searched for and deleted all entries with delta homes and baidu.

    Thanks, Stamp!

    FYI, I had done a Google search but failed to find it for manual removal. And the software I tried failed to work, too.

    (A pastor wanted to borrow this notebook. A year later, it was full of incredible crap ware. Seems he was surfing porn day and night :huh. It was a bad idea - wouldn't do it again).
