IE changing homepage to res://mshp.dll/index.html#22776

Every time I reset my home page to www.msn.com, IE resets
it to res://mshp.dll/index.html#22776. I scanned my
computer for viruses but the scanner did not detect any.
How do I keep my home page at www.msn.com?

First eliminate any scumware.
See
Dealing with Unwanted Spyware, Parasites, Toolbars and Search Engines
http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/unwanted.htm

Note that AdAware and SpyBot S & D will each catch some things the other
won't. Also, each need to be updated before every use, even when just
downloaded.

If trying everything at that site does not fix the problem please post back
in the same thread.

This is caused by a CoolWebSearch variant.

I finally found the fix for this stupid problem.
CWShredder will take care of this annoying hijacker problem. The
problem comes from a MSS VM Java exploit. The update comes from
windowsupdate to keep it from happening again. Also try Hijack This
out. These can be found at
