How to prevent home page hijacking

I have some PCs at work, and the users complain to me that after visiting certain sites, their IE homepage gets hijacked.  Even if I set the browser security settings to high, this still happens.  I tried to get rid of the problem using Spybot Search & Destroy and Adaware -didn't work.

The hijacker site is

Is there a registry setting I can change, or something I can do to prevent this from ever happening?
