    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    I've tried the LAN settings and setting the IP to 127.0.0.1 and added 8118 to the port, but it still shows ads on this site (yuck).

    That was the privoxy idea:

    Download and install Privoxy.
    Click on the Wrench icon in Chrome in the upper right corner.
    Choose options>Under The Hood>Change proxy settings.
    In the Internet Properties dialog's Connections tab, click on the LAN settings button.
    Check off "Proxy settings" and in the address setting add 127.0.0.1 and in the port 8118.
    If you have the option, you can also check off "Bypass proxy for local settings".
    Click "OK," close Chrome and restart it.

    You will need to configure it first to block the ads

    Now I'm not sure if there's a pre-made list that comes with it, or that you can download etc..

    Someone else on the fourm (or google) should be able to help you
