A week or so ago, I got a Chrome Adware extension. This seems to have come from some torrent which my dad accidentally clicked (I am not totally sure). The only signs of the infection is that a Chrome Adware extension keeps coming back and it populates ads over every website I visit.

Currently, if I remove the extension, the ads are temporarily gone. However, if I restart the PC and open up Chrome again, the extension comes back. The extension keeps appearing under different names including "PoriceMenus", "TheAdblock" and "Block the Ads". Here is a screenshot of the extension: http://i.imgur.com/ZbaT4wj.png

Tried scanning with Malwarebytes and Kaspersky. Kaspersky found some adware and removed it. Malwarebytes seemed to find a whole lot of stuff (30 or so threats) and remove it all, but the problem still keeps coming back.

Please help! I was planning to do a whole reinstall of the OS before I found this forum.
