internet explorer 11 ignoring my homepage setting

Hi, I have a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. I recently cleaned malware using Malwarebytes and Superantispyware. Now when I open Internet explorer the address in the address bar reads "http:// --c=5003" and the page can not be displayed. I have my homepage set to google.com and I have reset Internet explorer but the problem still persist. I have searched the internet for the problem and found nothing resembling my issue. If anyone can offer advice or explanation I would appreciate it.

Thanks for your reply ThrashZone. I tried the steps provided but no change. It must be malware that I missed in my cleaning. I think the easiest fix is to reload the laptop as there are only small files to backup. Thanks again for your help.
