My home page keeps changing

I have windows XP and everytime I turn on my computer my home page changes to res://mshp.dll/index.html#10213. I have run a system scan for viruses and nothing came up. I tryed to download hijackthis and when it goes to download, it redirects me to this web page http://search-1.net/cgi/search. I purchased a pop up killer hoping t would stop this page from poping up, no luck. I have something in my computer redirecting it and can not figure it out??

You need CWShredder from Merijn to get rid of this. It's the only thing that will do it:

Hi,

This is a CoolWebSearch Homepage Hijacker. Download this tool to remove it: http://www.softpedia.com/public/scripts/downloadhero/10-17-150/ . After running this, download Ad-Aware and Spybot Search and Destroy 1.3 RC4, which can be found at these respective links:  http://www.lavasoftusa.com and http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail.php3?fid=1043809773 . RC4 is a release candidate which is an advanced beta test. It should run very smoothly. However, if you do encounter problems with Spybot, download version 1.2 here: http://download.com.com/3000-8022-10194058.html?tag=lst-0-3 . Run all these programs in safe mode as well as in regular mode.
