Every time my computer restarts, Chrome wants to use a proxy server. So when I open up the browser, it says the webpage is unavailable, and I have to go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Change proxy settings > LAN settings and deselect the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" box.

I do not require a proxy for my connection, and I have never manually set one up. How can I prevent this option from being selected on every reboot?

Make sure the the Automatically detect settings checkbox is also deselected.
