I can try and by completely do you mean, control panel -> programs & features -> chrome -> uninstall or any specific methods?

Ok so this is my very fresh chrome install, made sure no configs or anything stayed behind, i didn't even log in with my google account. Now I'm gonna do an Adwcleaner scan (when it was uninstalled the malware wasn't there).

Ok, so far clean (keep in mind this is first bootup, no login).
I'll wait for further instructions from you incase there is something you want me to do, if not I'll go ahead and log in and see if everything is ok.

Ok after like a minimal usage, scan with Adwcleaner doesnt show the previous malware but it does show uk.ask.com search engine being installed which is weird cos i didnt do anything apart from being on this site and like my emails...

Ok i think i got the little sucker. Here is what i did, since i found out its in my "google account" i reset all the sync data (basically delete all my cloud savings) (local data still stays), cleaned up the browser with Adwcleaner to get rid of it, then restart, check, no malware, then sync it back to the cloud again. Seems to be good so far cos I'm logged in, synced and clean... I've had malwares on my PC and cleaned dozens of other PCs from malware/viruses, but this sucker was by far the most annoying and slithering of all... I'll update you tomorrow or in a day or 2 to see if its still all good.
