So today i was being ignorant and downloaded software which is turning out to be a virus, it downloaded a bunch of things which i was able to delete some of it but there is 2 folders which have admin over me so i cannot delete them. I'm on Windows 7 ultimate. What can i do?
 
Use another computer to make a rescue disc, such as Kaspersky's (free) and boot from that. It'll ignore any existing permissions issues on the unit and ideally remove or cripple the virus.

Of course, being careful where you download software, and where required, paying for legal copies would be suggested in future to avoid this.
