I have this extension on both Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

The extension is still there, "managed by your organization." Rkill seems to stop the processes at this point, but after a while, my browsers are redirected to yahoo or some odd search engines.

My next option is a reset of Windows. I am hoping to avoid that.

Any tips apart from wiping my computer clean?

The bad extension is hidden in the a Group Policy.

It is easy to identified and remove. I need to see the logs fro m this scan.

Download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST).
Choose the 32 or 64 bit version for your system.
and save it to a folder on your computer's Desktop.
Ensure that you are in an Administrator Account
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Check the boxes as seen here:

Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

Please attach the logs for my review.
How to attach a file to your reply:

Hi,

Please download the attached Fixlist.txt file to the same folder where the Farbar tool is running from.
The location is listed in the 3rd line of the FRST.txt log you have submitted.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait.

The Computer will restart when the fix is completed.

It will create a log (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

Please post the Fixlog.txt and let me know what problem persists.

p.s.
If any remaining issue please run the Scan with the Farbar program again and post fresh FRST.txt and the Addition.txt logs for my review.
