Hi,

You are new here, but your Joomla version is very old.

We are now working with 3.6.5 version and 3.7 version should be here soon (end of this month).

This behaviour looks like hacking. If you saved your website, it may be a good moment to check it.

Because you did not delete all the files from the server so there are hack files still on the server. Even if you delete all the files from the server then restoring from backup is pointless. Servers are compromised long before the hack is discovered. The original hack could have been placed on the server months ago. Please see and action viewtopic.php?f=714&t=946026 it is your best chance of getting your site working properly (unless you pay someone to fix it).

What part of the instructions on viewtopic.php?f=714&t=946026 tell you to install an earlier version of Joomla than the one that was hacked ? And you have not posted the results of the fpa. I am not sure how you can fail to follow the help given ... perhaps English is not you first language ... but in any case I am unable to help you further.
