How to uninstall a program in Windows 8?

I started using windows 8 recently and trying to get a grasp of it. When I downloaded an important program and installed it in my computer I was surprised that along with the installation an extra program was also installed. The lucky leap program was installed without my permission. I find it very annoying because every time I open a webpage in google chrome, several ads are showing up at the side and bottom page.

The best solution is to uninstall it.  Since Windows 8 is new to me, I do not know how to uninstall a program in Windows 8.  Then I figure it out. First you go to control panel. You can use the search shortcut at the side-most of the screen by moving the mouse and search control panel. The page for control panel will appear.
