URL Injection into our Wordpress Website - How do I remove it?

Over a week ago we were told that our website is listed on Google as being hacked. I see that lots of WP sites have been getting hacked/injected with Malware. Google scan shows the exact lines of code that was injected into our site. Security plugins and SiteLock site scans have been deployed and has cleaned up most of the malware and I have changed all of the passwords. My question is... how do I go about manually removing the remaining code. I'm not in any way a website person, I've looked around different folders/files within the site but I've failed to locate the web links as shown by Google crawl security issues. Our site is up and running and no visible damage has been done. But a Google search shows a bunch of Japanese characters in the title bar. If you can help me or need more information so that you can help me I'm ready to provide it. Thank you all in advance.

The Themes folder didn't contain any config files specifically but I did take a look at the index and header files but no links were in either of them. Where can I find the Theme Configuration File? Perhaps i'm looking in the wrong folder. Thanks.

I got this list of modified files from via a plugin on the website. Now I have to figure out how to safely edit/remove them so I dont crash our site.

What are you using to access the site (direct/FTP/Plugin)?  Config files do not end in cfg they are php fiiles.

Depending on how conversant you are with WordPress, you might consider the FileManager plugin.  If you have direct access, something like VI or notepad++, or filezilla for FTP access.
