  1. At the top right of chrome, there is a button for the main menu (has three horizontal bars). Click this, and to to Tools and then Extensions. If there are any extensions there that you don't recognize or didn't install yourself, uninstall them by clicking the little trashcan icon to the right.

    Have you tried doing a scan with MalwareBytes? It's generally pretty good at picking out strange pieces of adware like this.
