Virus! Need help!

There is a virus on my laptop, where I cannot open any files, it won't let me open anything. Before that happened there were fake virus alerts, and then when I got McAfee and did a virus scan it said I had to restart my computer to be able to get rid of some of them, so I did and when I restarted it it wouldn't let me open anything.

I have no idea how to fix this... Oh and it only infected one of my accounts, I had the main account then the guest account and it didn't affect the guest account at all.
