How to get rid of CloudScout pop-up ads please

I have just installed \chrome on a new Windows 8.1 desktop and now I have pop-up ads and lots of single words everywhere are highlighted in uppercase green character. I am presuming this came along with the Chrome or maybe the MS Office Outlook 2013 which I did at the same time. I have been on google but there seem so many options to fix this unwanted software but how do I know which to use or trust.

Many, many thanks. I am so grateful. I had seen that on google but wasn't game to try it without recommendation. I thought I had been careful and downloaded Chrome from the true site but it seems not.
