Why do the settings on some Chrome extensions disappear?

Every couple of days some of the extensions in Google Chrome lose their settings. I’ll open the browser only to find a bunch of tabs open (as if I had just installed all the extensions) including a tab claiming I won something or other.

My first thought was some sort of virus or malware, but I’ve run Malware, SuperAntiSpyWare, RisingPC, KingSoft Pc Doctor, Spybot Search and Destroy, amongst others(all in safe mode) and I come up clean.I have uninstalled Chrome and re-installed it but it still happens.

I’m not sure if it’s related but my system also seems to have a problem reclaiming free space. Can anyone help?
