google takes over as home page on ie6

Whenever I open IE, it defaults to google.com as the home page instead of our company home page.  I have run Hijackthis and found an entry.  I removed this.  I also went into the registry settings, and there was an entry there in HKCU>Software>Microsoft>Internet Explorer>Main showing the startup page as google.com.  changed this to the company's intranet site.  But when restarting the machine, again, google.com comes up as the home page.  where is it getting this information?

run the malwarebytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
Also is there anything like spybot or any spyware protection on the PC? They have settings to protect changes to the home page and must be turned off first.
also check for any toolbars that may be installed and remove them.

do you have the Google Toolbar installed?
If so, then make sure that it's properties are not set to default your homepage.

Good Luck
