Understand - nearly every website you go to, has dozens of trackers installed. It doesn't matter whether you're tracked via search, by the page you go to, by the app on your smartphone, by Facebook, your debit and credit cards, or any of the rest. Right now - you've got literally hundreds of different trackers that are cataloging your every move that they're aware of.
I have worked in digital strategy and advertising for my entire adult life. I buy advertising based on the data that Google and everyone else is gathering. Like millions of dollars a year. And I can tell you first hand that the tracking data is garbage, and frankly, at least for the foreseeable future, not something you should really be worried about, with one caveat. Advertisers are not the enemy, government and political agents are. ie. cambridge analytica. That is how you use this data to do harm.. We see literally thousands of advertisements a day. Does it *really* matter if my search history led to me seeing a different banner today?

And, with all due respect to Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and Marc Lore, Walmart’s CEO of U.S. ecommerce, it has considerably more star power than any retail events Western consumers are familiar with: The festivities include a countdown-to-midnight gala in Shanghai’s 18,000-seat Mercedes-Benz Arena with celebrities like model Miranda Kerr, who is confirmed this year, and footballer Lionel Messi, who once kicked goals against a shampoo bottle on behalf of sponsor Procter & Gamble.
in a long prior rush, I had also searched the registry (CAREFULLY!!!!) via W7's genuine Register Editor (Regedit) and found a pile of "SweetIm" occurences. I decided to take one of the FAQ's advices, downloaded Regsweep, and executed it with the keyword "SweetIm". That resulted in killing a few Registry entries, but did NOT remove the stubborn Tab. I also used a very good Freeware, on top of CCleaner, called Wise Registry Cleaner, to clean the regitsty after each consecutive correction act.
The most intolerable thing is that you can’t modify your homepage back to the original one any more if your computer gets such virus. You might find some solution and uninstall it from control panel, but the virus just takes root there and you may find since your computer got such virus, it runs more and more slowly. Don’t wait for any longer time, otherwise your computer will be completely destroyed.
For real I can't see alternative for Google. If you are smart enough you can use Google without giving them too much data about yourself. Just use incognito mode in chrome, change applications permissions at your phone, etc. Use it smart. Of course you can't hide all informations about yourself but you don't need to login as Adam Smith, use nickname, turn off GPS if it's not necessary.

as far as email and browsers go.. yeah use a vpn, use a browser that doesnt track your stuff, thats fine. But none of the "secure" email services do well with mail@yourowndomain so your options are use gsuite or microsoft or leave your email on the most insecure place possible, the same server your website is on? no thanks. ill stick with the company that is big enough to keep blowing money on security as i am more worried about other people getting my information than i am of facebook sending me ads based on things ive spoken out loud near my phone or searched for.
But I had missed the key step!! You helped me realizing that I HAD NEGLECTED to also remove the DEFAULT DT SEARCH install from the installed W7 program list. I missed it stupidely enough, andi should have sorted the list of installs by date: it would have popped obvious that this WAS the latest install of this malicious suite, which installed against my will during a legitimate freeware download.
'''jeannot52:''' SweetIM is a totally different, but seemingly as invasive, pest. You can "Google" it to get information. Removal of "Default Tab" is the key in ridding your system of the culprit that installs the "Search here" tab as posted by the OP, '''''bd67807'''''. Be careful when downloading and installing applications/add-ons from the internet as some include such extra items. Most, but not all, will give the user an opportunity during installation to un-check items to not install or to not change search engines. The add-ons on the Firefox/Mozilla add-ons site are fairly clean from this kind of pest. *https://addons.mozilla.org/
I got the same thing while downloading PS3 controller driver... I found it in 3 places 1. Internet Explorer> Tools> Manage Add-ons> Search Results LLC: Default Search Tab> Disable 2. Task Manager its called DT something but if you download or have Process Explorer you'll see it as Default Search Tab and just right click and stop process. 3. Start> Control Panel> Default Tab> KILL IT WITH FIRE!
