My computer won't let me start any programs!

Specs: Windows 7
So i was just downloading a cd, like i've done hundreds of times before but the particular link i found this time wasn't anything i'd used earlier but i decided to go along with it. I'm pretty sure it was called something like rapidgator or rapidgate. Anyway, so i opened the downloaded zip filé and then i got an virus warning which i clicked clean computer on and then My computer just froze. Pressing ctrl alt delete didn't work so i pushed the power button and it shut down. Then i rebooted it and tried to start chrome but it just froze and then the cursor was replaced with the blue loading ring. Everything just freezes and i've tried multiple times to just reboot it but the same thing keeps happening. Help!

I'm typing this on My iPhone so i' sorry for any spelling errors.

So if the site was illegal downloads kinda thing, then there is a good chance I can't help you. However if it was legit, then I would say before loading chrome(sounds like windows opens, might be incorrect here) switch it to safe mode and run avast and malwarebytes from within safe mode. Sounds to me like you got tricked into downloading malware.
