I currently have an issue with my chrome browser specifically. I have an extra search bar underneath my actual google search(image attached). When I use this seach bar it redirects to Play-bar.net and then to bing. I have tried resetting my chrome multiple times yet nothing works. I have no extensions running or suspicious programs. I have used many malware services yet nothing seems to find the issue. Anything helps. Thank you.

I would suggest you do all you can with these tips on Chrome browser.

You can force Chrome to start in reduced mode, called Incognito mode, by putting a parameter at startup.
First, close any prior instances of Chrome via Task Manager.
Then press Windows-key+R for the RUN option and then put a command line similar to this {do use COPY & PASTE}
 
chrome.exe -incognito


Starting Chrome in Incognito mode may work for you, and allow you to make "changes" or tweaks in it.
Note also, Incognito mode is also an option in the Chrome menu  {as long as it can start}.


Other suggestions, for Chrome, while Chrome is running:
Press & hold SHIFT+CTRL+Del keys to get menu for clearing browsing data:

Check "Empty the cache"
"Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data"
and press Clear browsing data button

Still in Chrome, press ALT+F then Settings
Click Extensions on the left.
Closely review the browser extensions that are listed.  Disable any that you are not familiar with or that you do not trust.
