This is a Windows 7 Proffesional pc on an SBS network. The user has click on something which has Hijacked IE. Now, whenever he opens IE the homepage is intially www.pvp5games.org and then redirects to msn.com

Any attempt to reset the homepage is overwritten

I've run HijackThis and removed everything that looked suspicious but I still have the problem.

How can I fix this?

check your lan settings under tools, internet options and make sure a proxy is not set up.  Also, run malwarebytes as well.  

Easy way to resolve would be if you have a system restore point prior to your issue.
