How to Remove EasyLife App Virus?

I need some help with a nasty and potentially dangerous computer virus that self-installed when I downloaded a freeware program.  It called EasyLife. I have uninstalled it from my computer and it still appears in chrome, I've also tried the extensions tab and it isn't there but still appears when I type in the search bar. Please help. I am really getting annoying by it.

Description of EasyLife App Virus

The Easylife App virus, referred to as EasyLife App Popup, and the redirection virus. In the contrast with its name, Easylife App is not dedicated in making people enjoy themselves online, but makes the web-life more complicated and contaminates with ads that most users hate. When Easylife gets into the PC, it starts its browser hijacker behaviors. It will switch your default homepage into and alter the default search engines without users’ permission.
And then, it will add strange shortcuts or icon on the desktop or favorite bar of the infected PC which once click will navigate users into malicious websites that contain a lot of commercial ads and links. At the same time, this notorious virus also creates unstopped pop-up ads to interrupt people to surf the internet which makes people getting annoyed. What’s worse, the virus chisels up a backdoor which can be easily exploited by tracking cookies for information collection, as a result, your personal data may be at a high risk of exposure to the open. All in all, Easylife App should be removed as soon as possible before it steals your confidential information and does more harm to your PC.
