What to do if my computer is infected by a virus or a malware?

The link came as spam, so I expect only bad things from it. I quickly closed the tab before it fully loaded so I don't know what was on the site. What is the worst that can happen now? If there was some script on that website it might have executed.

What can I do to help the situation now?
