How do I Remove Ads by SalePlus from Chrome Completely

My roommate often shops and watches movies online. One day she found random ads pop up on Chrome, especially on shopping pages like Amazon, which drove her nearly crazy. She said she accidentally clicked on a pop-up link and didnít notice the danger. Having some acknowledge of computer, I looked into each pop-up ad and found the word in common: SalePlus. That is, it must be caused by SalePlus. I tried sorting it out in some hours.
First, I check the Control Panel. But unluckily it does not locate there. Then I open Chrome browser, go to tools and check unfamiliar add-ons. Well, some extension naming SaleeePluss is enabled. Without doubt, I trash it. Meanwhile, I clear all caches and browsing history (For sure, I export her bookmarks). After a reboot, the browser works fine again (really makes her day! LOL). Just in case the malware comes back again, I search the keyword in registry keys. Luckily it has not infected the system deeply.
Later on I Google SalePlus and viewed some posts listed at the top. One detailed removal guidematched my thoughts exactly.
What a nice day!

1. Add SalePlus to your host file.

Do a search for:

Windows 8 host file

or whatever version of Windows that you are using. It may also be necessary to remove their files from your machine.

Search for removing Temporary Internet Files.
If they have created a Folder in your machine, remove it. If needed use Windows Help for that.

Good luck. I'm gone for the day, but others here are much more knowledgable than me.
