How to get rid of toolbars on Google chrome on a windows 8 pc?

When I first got my laptop, it was very fast but now it's slow. I looked into it a bit and a likely cause is the toolbars I have on my internet browser. I didn't download them myself but they somehow found a way into my computer. I've searched online on how to get rid of them and I've been told to go to control panel to uninstall the toolbars. I've tried doing that but my pc won't let me. It keeps telling me that it can't uninstall it because it is in use/running. However, all of my internet browsers were off and I even restarted my pc again. Is there anything else that I can do? Thank you :)

    If thats the case there being stubborn boot into safe mode and do it from there. I have to give you a link to show you from my pal Tim Fisher as its a little different to other versions of Windows. Or you can try and it is a very good program to have anyway, thats Revo uninstaller -

    Oh Google Chrome you need to go to tools and select task manager to kill the process. The other answer will work to but Revo will get rid of everything that is left over like Browser redirects and registry entries.

    Use the Google Chrome settings (looks like a few bars on the top right hand corner)...

    Click on settings

    Click on extensions

    Then disable or delete the extensions you dont want.
