How to clean Chrome Malware/Adware/Rogue/Hacked Extensions

Antivirus company ESET has built Google Chrome Cleanup, a built-in tool now available in Chrome. It's a security tool that scans Chrome and alerts users to potential threats. The tool scans current Chrome instance and notifies users when it finds potentially unwanted or malicious software to be removed.
