Somehow the Connect toolbar/search page has gotten on my computer.  I've read the information on Google on how to remove it from Chrome, but it isn't in the "Extensions" portion of the settings.

I've also run a complete scan using MalwareBytes and it didn't find it.

Any help getting rid of it, would be appreciated

The article describes it as ...
The Connect Toolbar it’s technically not a virus, but it does exhibit plenty of malicious traits, such as rootkit capabilities to hook deep into the operating system, browser hijacking, and in general just interfering with the user experience.

For future reference, when you are installing free/demo software always choose the custom install option and not the recommended default install option. This will allow you exclude unwanted garbage-ware!

I article helped but left out one step, which after deleting the Conduit search engine, I needed to do.  See attachment.  Make sure you check the "set pages" so Connect isn't there.
