I cant remove a PriceChhop or Savelots browser extension under Chrome ?

Some malware installs web browser extensions that may remain after removal, and even get reinstalled each time you start your browser.

If you have tried running Malwarebytes AntiMalware, AdwCleaner, JRT (Junkware Removal Tool), etc. and a pesky Chrome extension still comes back every time you restart the browser, try the following:

Open Windows Explorer and navigate to:

1. Navigate to: C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data
2. Delete everything in the "Default" folder (note: you will lose your bookmarks!)

After that the extensions should be gone. Some adware extensions that seem to always reappear each time you open Chrome, even after deleting them include "Pricechop" (a.k.a. PriceChhop) and "Savelots".
