CoupExtenSiOn 1.3 Chrome Extension, automatically installed and re-installs itself upon removal and restarting Chrome. How can I get shut of it?!

Somehow this extension has made its way onto my Chrome browser. I haven't installed it myself, the most recent extensions I have installed are Thumbit (To replace HoverZoom) and RES.

I uninstalled the program called CoupExtenSiOn that was installed onto my PC without my knowledge. I've done a quick scan with Malwarebytes and removed the files it found. (Some of which had CoupExtenSiOn in the file names). I've uninstalled Google Chrome and reinstalled it, but its still here and just reappears everytime I relaunch Chrome.

EDIT: Also done a full scan with Malwarebytes, no more files found.

The scary thing about it are the permissions it grants itself, it can "Access your data on all websites" and "Manage your apps, extensions and themes". That's how I'm assuming it keeps re-installing itself.

How can I get rid of it?!

Some pictures of what it does to sites and its permissions, also my version of Chrome

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit. I built the PC myself, but its nothing fancy. 8GB Ram, AMD Radeon HD7870, I5 3470 and a 1TB HDD. Although I doubt much of that matters.

I've posted this in r/chrome, but have had no response so far.

Please help me, I don't trust using chrome for anything important until its fixed!
