I got a zip file from the internet and when i extracted it, i dont know what happened but an explorer.exe started running in the background(i saw in task manager) and its icon is of vlc media player and there is another process without any name. I cant force stop them.

Now, the main problem is that, whenever i open a folder with an exe file, it takes a huge amount of time to load and when its loaded, the icon of the exe's in the folder changes to the icon of vlc !

I believe that this explorer.exe is a virus and when i click open file location, it takes me to
C:/windows/resources/themes
And the "no name one" takes me to
C/windows/resources

The files are nowhere to be seen but when i try to delete the whole folder, it shows the file and says that it cant delete it cuz its running in the background.

The antivirus cant find this file but the other infected files show thats they are infected with
Avast- win32:VB-ojq
Windows defender- win32/mofksys.B

Please help!
How to fix this?
