Hello SebastianIron,

Please, follow the instructions in this post and scan&clean again. Chrome syncs history and preferences in the cloud, and after a clean, it downloads and installs the extension again. The post will help you disabling that sync.

Let us know if it works!

Can you share the scan log file please?

Also please try the following:

1. Uninstall Chrome again

2. Remove this folders:

  • C:\Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome
  • C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome

3. Install Chrome again

Chrome uninstaller keeps profile and extensions folders/files in the computer, and that's probably why you still have that extension installed.
