When options opens up, under home page click on the little button next to the URL that says "Open this page". That should allow you to change the url.

I'm thinking it could be your computer. It may also be that certain website.

You re-installed chrome?

Now go! And let the legend come back to life!

Alright try this...
In the "basics" tab of the "options" menu, at the top where it says "On Start Up", click on the button that says "open up the following pages", then enter your URL and restart chrome.

That's the only other fix. Hope it helps.

What is your homepage now? You might have some filthy spyware mucking up your settings, so if your homepage is something weird like myspysearchagent.com or something crazy like that, it would help to figure out why this is happening.

Yeah, that definitely sounds like some malware. Try running Spybot Search & Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/), MBAM (http://www.malwarebytes.org/) and seeing if they come up with anything.

Also go into Add/Remove programs and see if you have any "toolbars" installed. I'm almost certain you have at least "Startsearcher.com Toolbar" somewhere. But also remove the more benign ones like Google Toolbar (If you have it) and others. Also look in there for programs you don't know (Ask before you remove though!) 

Edit/b] It seems that according to this site: http://www.pchelpsoft.com/trends/startsearcher-removal/ StartSearcher comes from Facebook theming tools, so try disabling those.
