If you didn't make this change yourself I also strongly advise a virus scan ASAP.

Seems your Chrome is virussed: you probably installed this Deltasearch with some other program, eg some Adobe update or some other freeware.

What I would do:
- go to Windows configuration console, select "Programs and functionalities" to get the list of installed programs, sort it by install dates (most récent first). You should fin Delta here, with some other suspects which might be (or not! be careful) malware.
- uninstall delta and other malware installed around the same time. (beware of questions asked while unindtalling!)
- update then run your virus scanner (in case you are not sure to have one: Windows Defender is quite good now)
- then reboot even if bot asked too.
- launch every browser you are using (Chrome, IE etc)
- check for "installed" modules and remove (almost) ALL toolbars that are here and for which you find no use (tricky here. Probably wiser on the first round to simply disactivate them)
- do the same for search engines. Unless you have very spécial requirements, you probably REALLY need just Google and Bing, and maybe some like Wikipedia etc. Remove Delta, Ask etc

Spécial note on anti-virus: you MUST have one (yes, even for Macs and Linux), and it MUST be current. Some (McAfee etc) come "free" and preinstalled on Windows... Except that after some time they want you to pay for subscription updates. I suggest you use some of the available free tools:
- on Windows, Windows defender, avg by Grisoft (beware using the free version, not the "free trial" one), Avast
- on Mac: Avast, Clamwin
- on Linux: Clamwin
This list will probably be completed by other experts
