Windows 7: Malware in Chrome reinstall

Malware in Chrome reinstall

Norton worked for hours removing a bad virus form my machine. When I got back into Chrome, there is a malware plugin, Coupon Companion Plugin, that cannot be removed. There is no trash can icon next to it. I've been searching for an hour for a solution to removing a stubborn plugin from Chrome. My computer experience is becoming a nightmare. Your suggestions to fix this problem will be greatly appreciated. ec

1. Exit Google Chrome completely.
2. Enter the keyboard short cut Windows key+E to open Windows Explorer.
3. In the Windows Explorer window that appears enter the following in the address bar.
Code:
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\
4. Locate the folder called "Default" in the directory window that opens and rename it as "Backup default."
5. Try opening Google Chrome again. A new "Default" folder is automatically created as you start using the browser.

Then check if the problem still persists.

If no luck, try the following, andd we will remove it manually:

Please download OTL from one of the links below:
