I can't delete files that contain viruses because I don't have permissions?

    This is really bad. I downloaded something thinking it was safe, when it fact it wasn't. But when I tried to go back and delete all the folders after I uninstalled it, I just got the "access denied" message. So I went in and changed my user to admin, but nothing changed. My access is still denied, and my computer has become even more infected since I can't do anything about it. Also the computer didn't notify me at all that the program I was downloading was a virus, because all of the firewalls were turned off, and I can't turn them on because I apparently am not an administrator. What do I need to do? I need some help bad before these viruses get worse
