Got Mysearchdial on my brand new computer :( (just got it today)

Used Avast, Malwarebytes, and hit man pro. Haven't seen anything under extensions when I go into google chrome. It's not under my control panel. It looks like it's cleared, no symptoms yet. But sometimes when I open Chrome the search engine still comes up. What do I do?

Edit: Just did another scan and found malware from my searchdial

I apologize for the long reply time.
Thank you, I ended up getting rid of it myself. I didn't read a tutorial thoroughly enough and skipped a few steps.
