Chrome browser extension - virus/malware and unable to uninstall

Last Modified: 2015-07-27
Hi Experts,
I'm stumped on removing a virus from a computer. It shows up as an extension in Google Chrome. It's called WebSecurity and I can't find more than 5 hits on the internet.
This is the bad extension.

Against this, we've run Hitman Pro, MalwareBytes, AdwCleaner, Spybot, HijackThis.

We're looking for advise on a way to remove the extension permanently.
