Malware?

Hi guys
A friend of ours is having problems with their IE the home page keeps changing etc. Their words are that it is as if the browser has been Hijacked. Any help or advice for a fix would be much appreciated,

Browser hijacks are usually more annoying than dangerous.
But run this http://filehippo.com/download_adwcleaner/

Hi r.g.nixon
I have NIS, malwarebytes and ccleaner. All work with each other, no problem. My question is "Would it be ok to download and run adwcleaner as well, or would that be overkill?"

It would be OK, as it's not that they run all the time, except NIS and the paid version of MBAM.
