How can I get rid of video downloader vgrabber in Chrome on Windows 8?

I am unable to completely rid my computer of this thing which seems to have kidnapped my Google search.

The directions I found on the internet were aimed for Windows 7. I have upgraded to Windows 8 and cannot find some of the utilities accessed in the Windows 7 solution. Even after I think I have successfully gotten rid of it, back it comes.

I do have Norton 360 on my machine and Comcast antivirus. Neither one of those have been helpful.

Thanks.

    In the Google Chrome browser, go to chrome://extensions/.
    Find Vgrabber in the list.
    Click Uninstall.

    Download either (or both) SuperAntispyware and/or Malwarebytes and install them.
    Start you machine in Safe Mode then run a full scan with them.

    Try going into Chrome, type into the web address bar chrome://settings then go to the left and click extensions, find what you are trying to remove and click on the trash can to delete it.
