I downloaded some freeware recommended by MakeUseOf and it came with Delta Toolbar, which hijacked my browser. I HOPE I’ve uninstalled it, but I’m not sure.
Use CCLeaner or Revo Uninstaller or IOBIT uninstaller (I use that one) to uninstall it.
Please find detailed instructions for removing Delta Search here: http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-delta-search/
I edited your comment and removed all the text you had copied and pasted from the above source.

Open up the Start Menu in Windows 7 type in Programs & Features, when it loads up scroll through the list till you find Delta toolbar and double click it. It may run you through an uninstall process but it will do the job.
Windows 7: Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program > Delta Toolbar > Uninstall
Vista / XP: Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Delta Toolbar > Remove
Bobs your uncle
Use Ccleaner Tools tab and uninstall it. Then erase temp files and clean registry with it.
You can double check by going to control panel and then Add/Remove Programs and look for Delta Toolbar in the list. Worst case scenario, you can go nuclear and uninstall the browser completely along with its saved settings on the computer (if anything chrome saves your browser settings as long as you're signed into Gmail) and then reinstall the browser.
I followed this removal guide and was able to remove it:
Or you can search Youtube, there are a few videos there as well.
This little bugger comes with the InstallQ installers, in my case it was Video Performer. They tricked me into believing that I actually need some 'special' player to watch the video. If you got it from the same source, you will have to remove the program too. Scumbags!

See control panel for delta toolbar and uninstall it.Also,you can uninstall it by going to addons menu to uninstall it.
If you still unable to uninstall it,then you can use Revo Uninstaller which does work without harming your PC.
Also there is a tool that deals with unwanted toolbars here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/
I dont know how good it is first hand as I havnt used it but a couple of sites recommend it.
Step by step instructions can be found here:
No matter where you get a link for free software, always read what is going to be installed as you go through the install path and uncheck any nasty toolbar bundles.
It will be less painful in the long run.
This should work, I think. And I cannot recommend enough that people pay attention while installing stuff and always say no to toolbars. They are never, ever helpful.
