OTM.exe Creating Half Transparent Folders

Yesterday I downloaded [OTM exe.] since I had this warning message saying 'C\Windows\system32\sshna21.dll' error or something. I realized that I got a Trojen, so I used OTM to begin my first step of removing the virus.

But the thing is that, I already deleted this 'sshna21.dll' several days ago before I searched help online.

After running OTM, there were lots of helf-transparent folders or items scattering all over in my laptop. Some of them were shortcuts which couldn't be opened, while others contained both solid and half-transparent sub folders.

I had no difficulty running Malware, though. And the Trojen seemed to be killed since I no longer see the warning popping out whenever I start my laptop.

I just don't know what to do with all those half-transparent thing. I find it rather annoying to see them lying around in my computer, but am not sure if I should simply delete them.

Please help me.
