gotut.ru

This page pops up every single time I boot my PC - some malware thing, I suppose. Googling doesn't help much. It's exasperating.

Is there any way to block actual websites/pages?

Download and install Malwarebytes, which should fix it.

Still there after a scan and attempts to block the site.

It's not a problem as I can delete the tab as soon as I start up Chrome, but I'm worried it's symptomatic of something harmful.

I'm not familiar with the spyware myself, but things that might help:

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome?

This is a bit of a punt, but you could try putting an entry in the Hosts file to block the site. Something like:
127.0.0.1 gotut.ru
