IE homepage turns to mycompanyweb

We have upgraded our server to WSBS 2008 and ever since then, the clients who are running Windows 7 gets their homepage reset to mycompanyweb.   We have disable all that points to mycompanyweb on the server, the website is shut down, and the group policy is disabled.
It happens at least 2, 3 times a day to these clients.
Please advise.

I found out that the second tier server that is running Blackberry Server had mycompanyweb as the homepage settings.  After removing that, the problem went away.
Thank you for your advices.  I should have realized that there was another server running.
Sorry about that.

run rsop on one of the win7 clients and see what policy is modifying the home page...it's a domain or local policy somewhere that was probably overlooked.

This is set in the policy Windows SBS User Policy.
Change the value in the policy.
It can be find in under: User configuration | Policies | Windows settings | Internet Explorer Maintenance | URL's | Important URL's  and change the valua for the homepage

User configuration | Policies | Windows settings | Internet Explorer Maintenance | URL's | Important URL's | Home Page URL was not disabled.

I went to look at SBS User Policy, and Home page URL was already changed to http://www.cnn.com, with "Customize Home page URL" checked off.

Should that be disabled?

I ran rsop on one of the clients' laptop, but I did not see anything that mentioned "mycompanyweb".  Should I be looking for something else?

I realized that we had a secondary server running after I posted the question.
