Getting Rid of Search Engine

Hi,
Sadly I appear to have picked up a search engine that is taking over my Google Chrome Browser.
It is called 'Search.us.com'.
I have managed to uninstall it via Control Panel but it still appears in one location on my Chrome Settings. If I opt to have 'Show Home button' under 'Appearance' it reappears.
I have run: adwcleaner, HitmanPro, and JRT. But to no effect.
Any ideas anyone?
Thank you.
Ian

  1. Go to Crhome Settings, under it there is a Search Tab. Under the Search tab, you can manage your search engine via the omnibox.
  2. Have you looked under your Chrome settings/extensions ? It may just be that it needs to be disabled/deleted from within Chrome as well as the Control panel. Chrome is stand alone and independent of your PC.

  3. Thanks for those suggestions but it is not mentioned under Search or Extensions :-(
  4. Try settings/Search/Manage search engines and check that Google is set as default. You can right click and delete if the rogue engine is listed .
