As XpUser4Real points out, when you start system restore, there is a small check box that says "Show more restore points" or something like that, just click there and after a few moments, there should be a list of all of your restore points. I am not sure why MS decided to hide these (possibly assuming that idiots were restoring to the oldest restore points rather than recent ones), but they should all be there.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Download these to a thumbdrive using another PC and then install them on the problem machine.
Try these 2 free fully working trials:
1-Trojan Remover

2- HitMan Pro

Run them till they run clean.

Perform a System Restore to a date at least a week before this issue began.
When the restore is complete, restart in Safe Mode with Networking. Then try downloading above and Malwarebytes, if they work, run all three and try normal mode again.

"unable to open the downloaded files of 003"
Do you mean files with the an extension .003 , such as filename.003
and if so, what files are these?

What exactly happens when you try to download them (or do you mean that you
can't run or install them?).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
