I have tried everything to get rid of SearchMine on Google Chrome and now I do not know what to do. I contacted Apple and they got rid of it on Safari and we scanned the computer using Malwarebytes. I have deleted all profiles on my computer. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome. I have followed the instructions for typing in the codes in the Terminal app and restarted my computer and it is still there. I have also tried to reset the settings to the default settings. SearchMine does not show up in my google chrome preferences but every time I open up Chrome or a new tab, SearchMine is the homepage. Please help!!!

I have the exact same problem. I followed all the suggestions in this thread (https://support.google.com/chrome/thread/9350623?hl=en) but nothing is working. I see that in Chrome:Policy there are policies setting SearchMine as the DefaultSearchProviderName, HomepageLocation, and NewTabPageLocation. They all apply to the "Machine". The infected computer is a mac managed by a g-suite for education account.

So I tried everything and nothing worked. Eventually i got desperate and bought "Combo Cleaner".

It was expensive, cost me $75 AUD but it got rid of searchmine instantly.

Definitely use this as an absolute last resort because it is pricy, try everything else first. You might be luckier than me. 

I just got frustrated as nothing else would remove searchmine from chrome. But now it's gone and Im happy.
