I Installed a .exe file by accident and now Mcafee has detected trojans etc..

Now I can't open My documents, My computer, Recycle Bin, etc... only thing i can open are installed applications.

When I double click my computer etc. it just shows the hourglass then nothing happens.

Please help, i'm getting really frustrated!!

I wasn't having pop ups of the sort, but I have managed to get rid of the trojans now.. I simply rebooted in safe mode.. (which enabled me to open "my computer", etc.. then deleted the file i installed.. then deleted all the programs it had installed from the control panel (about 4 or 5) then deleted a few regisrty keyes which belonged to the trojans which i found from "Windows Defender".
