Alright, so I'm getting this error message every time I run Chrome. I had this problem a few months ago and ran through a few different programs, but I don't think it fixed anything! Please help. This is the error message I'm getting. There is no Internet connection

There is something wrong with the proxy server, or the address is incorrect.

If you use a proxy server...
Check your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working. If you don't believe you should be using a proxy server: Go to the Chrome menu > Settings > Show advanced settings... > Change proxy settings... > LAN Settings and deselect "Use a proxy server for your LAN".
