Restore Hacked vBulletin 4 forum

I run a long standing vB 4 forum with a large database, very recently modified and got everything running just right with the help of a small team. On Friday 13th Sept 2013 the site was hacked. The site was completely disabled, all backup were deleted and which ever page you attempted to access it always seemed to redirect to the hackers page. I personally know very little about the PHP code that vB runs on but through a process of elimination managed to suss out what the hackers had done, I corrected it and the site was running. I then contacted my host to get them to change all the passwords (database, ftp etc.) but the hosts were too slow and within 15 mins the site was hacked again, this time by a different crew. This time I have had the sense to change all the passwords before any work is done to correct the damage. I have got the site running but there are pages that still go to the hackers page. This is probably an easy fix for someone with the knowledge but I need an expert to help me correct this damage as I don't have the knowledge. PLEASE HELP.
