If anti-virus can not remove [a browser hijacker], you can try the manual removal :

Click the Chrome menu button on the browser toolbar, select "Tools" and then click on "Extensions".
In the "Extensions" tab, remove (by clicking on the Recycle Bin) the [unwanted extensions] and any other unknown extensions from Google Chrome.
Set Google Chrome default search engine to Google.
Click the Chrome menu button, then select "Settings" and click on "Manage search engines" in the Search section.
In the Search Engines dialog that appears, select "Google" and click the "Make Default" button that appears in the row.
Search for [name of browser hijacker] in the Search Engines list, and click the X button that appears at the end of the row.
Change Google Chrome homepage to its default.Click the Chrome menu button, then select Settings and click on "One the New Tab page" in the "On Startup" section.
