I have deleted unknown extensions, used system preferences to delete unknown profiles, looked for suspicious files and restored back to original settings on the browser.

It still says managed by an organisation on my browser and I cannot change it. Please give me any suggestions you can.

Hi Kirsten,
 
On a home or personal computer, third-party software may have set a Chrome enterprise policy, which can create notices saying Chrome is "Managed by your organization".
  • In most cases, the software setting these policies is safe. For example, an application may use a policy to integrate more seamlessly with Chrome.
  • When this happens, Chrome will display the "Chrome is being managed by your organization" message to you, ensuring that you're aware that Chrome's behavior is being modified by someone other than you.
If you see these notices unexpectedly, open a new tab and navigate to chrome:policy, which will tell you which policies are being applied. For example, you may see an extension added to Chrome by your password-management application, or other software you trust.
