First I love ubuntu and I pretty much use my computer to surf web.Well recently I started using google chrome and it was great.I do alot of CL and used to have to copy & paste addresses into gmail to respond to ads well the other day it got a cool looking status bar kind of sideways candycane when i hit reply to ads -very cool and welcome even though i have no clue how it happened but as the days passed the computer is slowing just like a windows machine with a virus. there is NOTHING worth saving on this machine so should i reformat or something less drastic?

Please be more descriptive. Seems to me that something hideous has been installed into your Chrome. Why are you responding to ads anyway?
Anywho, open up Chrome's Addon Manager and check if something weird is installed onto your browser.
