bearshare

I have installed Firefox on my Windows XP and it has made bearshare my home page. I have tried several times through Tools/Options to change it to google.ca, but it keeps opening with bearshare. What do I have to do to change it?

The last time I tried, a window appeared, telling me that 'Winbar' had blocked an attempt to change the Home Page and it gave me the option to change it so I did.
