Banish 'DropInSavings'

For some time now I've been battling Google Chrome and an add-on called DropInSavings. It's a very irritating drop down menu that appears in the top right of your browser window which 'helpfully' suggests discounts and offers relating to the site you're looking at.

Today I decided to banish it for good. To remove it open Chrome and go to chrome://extensions

Disable all your active extensions and then re-enable them one at a time and then retest on a site you know you get the drop down on. In my case I used www.argos.co.uk

Work through each of your Chrome extensions until you isolate the extension that includes the DropInSavings add-on. Then simply remove the extension from the chrome://extensions page.

I found that the culprit was Google+Tweet extension by Crossrider.com, once deleted my problem ceased.
