What version of Mac OS X are you using ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

version 10.9.4

Expert:  Ashik replied 3 years ago.
On finder, Close Chrome. Then hold down Option key on your Keyboard, click on Go menu and select Library. This will take you to the Library folder of your User Account. Then open Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default folder and then move the Extensions folder to desktop. Open Chrome. Did that work ?

Expert:  Ashik replied 3 years ago.
Goto desktop, then hold down Option key on your keyboard and click on Go menu in the top bar. Do you see Library now ?

Expert:  Ashik replied 3 years ago.
Open Chrome. Is it showing the ad ?
Expert:  Ashik replied 3 years ago.
Hi there, just checking. Are you still getting the ads ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

ok they've disappeared completely now :)

Expert:  Ashik replied 3 years ago.
Glad to hear that. Now, you can trash the Extensions folder from desktop. The plugin was stored on the extensions folder that you moved.
