How to KILL KeepVid extension on Chrome?

KeepVid was good to download online videos then it was taken down but I can't find any way to delete this extension.
It pops on any online videos and of course it doesn't work and it's kind of annoying.
Does anyone know where in Cent Browser (Chrome engine) I can find this extension and kill it?

[1] Are you sure it is an extension as opposed to a program?
[2] Does it show up in Uninstall programs?

If it does appear in Uninstall programs then . . .

Download and run Revo Uninstaller [FREE] from here => Revo Uninstaller.

It starts with the programs built-in [default] uninstall process if there is one and then prompts you for additional cleaning. Select scan for leftover items and select one of the options available [I usually use the Advanced Scan option], then tick everything and delete it. This will remove any registry/exe entries or leftover orphans from the original programs built-in [default] uninstall process.

I hope this helps!

I'm pretty sure and I remember when I loaded it, it's an extension and I couldn't find it in the programs.

But thanks to your tip I did a drive's search function and found it, the nasty thing is that its files are always up to date so I guess they might sent data back to someone.
So is that safe to delete?

[1] Have you checked the Startup menu?
[2] Have a look at this => Disable extension autoupdates?.
[3] Have a look at this => Remove KeepVid.com (Removal Instructions).

It appears that it can be found under Keepvid.com!

I hope this helps!

1) Nothing in the startup.
2) There is nothing in browser's extension list so their instructions cannot help.
3) Just a generic how to like thousands on the web, they just give generic information.

I deleted the keepvid folder but nothing has changed, the pop up is still present.

So there are no guru experts in the Seven forums?
The title might be confusing because I think that Keepvid installation resides in Windows not in the browser.
So can anyone here tell me how to treat a spyware, virus or similar stuff, how can I find them?

Making a Chrome Extension
I had a great idea as an extension to Chrome. If you type in, for example, @besweeet into the address bar, it'll automatically take you to Brian (besweeet) on Twitter. So it just needs to replace @ with Twitter. Thought it would be neat. Maybe someone here can help me out?
