Hey guys, unfortunately I have somehow been infected by several high level security threats. I ran Avast yesterday and it said it found several viruses.

FirstScan

After trying to remove them, Avast scheduled a boot time scan for me, which I did. Here are the results:

BootTimeScan

As you can see more infected files were detected, but Avast was able to successfully move them all to the chest. However, after, when windows booted back up again, I was unable to open and run most programs. I assume this is because Avast removed important windows files to the chest, thus causing windows 7 problems like not being able to run most programs.
So, I did a system restore and everything went back to normal. I then ran a scan again with the following results.

AfterRestore

So, now I'm scared to take any further action because since these might be important windows files, removing them can cause problems, right? Which is what happened to me in my first attempt... I think.
I need some help removing these viruses guys, how do you remove something that's in these files? I ran both Malwarebytes and Ad-Aware, neither of them detected anything. What should I do now?
I really appreciate any help.

In the images, can you please show the full path by expanding the column title called File Name?

I don't think Avast has a feature that expands it. Only mousing over them each individually shows their full path. Give me a second please.

I think it would be safe to assume that the threats that Avast detected are false positives.;

Really, so, should I ignore them? Or perhaps download AVG or AVIRA to double check?

I would ignore them, and also update your Java via http://www.java.com
