Remove TopArcadeHits extension

I downloaded a player from a download.com web site that is required to view FLV files. I installed it on the system thinking that it was legitimate. However, I still can’t play my files. Aside from being fooled, the installer program seems to have a virus with it. My browser is not overtaken with TopArcadeHits. It is all over my Firefox and Google Chrome. TopArcadeHits extension is somehow hard to remove.

Previously, when Firefox got infected with malicious thing, I can easily fix it by going to Troubleshooting, then Reset. This process is not applicable with TopArcadeHits extension. I even cleared all cache and cookies but it doesn’t help me solve the problem.

Last thing I did was to uninstall Firefox completely then reinstall it afterwards. That would have partly resolved the problem. TopArcadeHits extension is already disabled but not totally gone. How can I permanently delete it from this browser?

In Google Chrome, I have bigger issue. I cannot disable or delete TopArcadeHits extension no matter what I did. Uninstalling the browser didn’t help at all. Please help me.
