So, I cannot say if this will help you but this is from my experience dealing with similar issues.
There are files on the server. Some of these may be hidden files. In addition to this the file names may be created in such a way that they cannot be deleted by normal means even if you can see them. Restoring from a backup will not eliminate these files.
What you need to do is to delete everything on the server. A hint that you have hidden files that you cannot correctly delete is that you will be unable to delete folders that are apparently empty but give you an error that you cannot delete a non-empty folder. If you run into this condition then you need to contact your hosting company and ask them to delete these folders.
Once everything has been deleted change the FTP password, make it something secure, and then restore your site.
