Want to add Google is the default in my Safari preferences.

Unfortunately, Safari makes it very difficult to add/change the search engines -- if the DDG extension is overriding Google, it's because that is the only way we've found to change the search engine within an extension. You remove the extension can try one of the other methods of adding DDG listed here: http://help.duckduckgo.com/customer/portal/articles/216447-safari

The last sentence of your reply is garbled. Please tell me how to completely delete DDG from Safari. I had no idea it would be so intrusive. Thanks.

It's not garbled at all, it's a link. Click on it, the instructions then follow the instructions.

Thank you but I'm not referring to the link, I'm referring to the sentence:  "You remove the extension can try one of the other methods of adding DDG listed here:"

I followed the link but I didn't see any instructions about deleting DDG from Safari only about how to add it. 

Please tell me how to remove DDG.

Oops, sorry -- not sure what happened to my last sentence up there. Have you checked http://help.duckduckgo.com/customer/portal/articles/268460-remove-safari-extension ?

My last sentence of the previous reply simply meant to do that ^^ and then you can try one of the other methods to add DDG if you wish. The other methods definitely should not override Google.
