I removed the battery from the computer and let it go dead. Then I turned off the network. Then I brought the computer up in safe mode. I looked for files that were about the right age ( loaded 8 hours ago) and moved them all. I was able to open Malwarebytes and then I restarted the wireless network and was able to get to the Malwarebytes website. I downloaded it again and ran a scan. It did find the avasoftware pieces and I did remove it. Once Malwarebytes was run I then found AVAsoft in my list of Programs!! So it was made visible and I deleted it.
Once it was removed then Windows Essentials was again visible as was the firewall program. These were made unavailable (Hidden maybe?) by the program. I also was able to see the restore points again. I ran Windows Essentials next and it also found pieces of the malware (the commands to disable the firewall and windows essentials) and I removed them.
I'm sure this isn't exactly all the steps I took but I tried many, many things. Right now all is working well. I have book marked your page incase this ever happens again.
The malware was installed from a phony FedEx email and there was a button to PRINT RECIEPT. This is what did it.
