1. Remove that version - that's the "consumer" version that installs into the profile.
2. Install the Enterprise Version of Chrome.  It actually installs to Program Files or Program Files (x86).
3. There are also GPO objects for the enterprise version.
4. Remove the icon from \programdata\microsoft\windows\start menu\programs
5. You can use your Group Policy Preferences to add the icon for the users you want to have access
6. Secure the chrome directory and only allow the administrators and a security group to have access to the files.

I *believe* you can use the GPO settings for the enterprise bundle to keep regular users from installing Chrome into their profile.
