thanks buteman and brundle both of those worked but there was no programs or my computer showing the trojan must hide it also tried f8 key but it wont let you run a program from a memory stick so went back to original windows and got my computer from the bottom found my memory stick and run superantivirus that cleared most but malwarebytes anti virus cleared the rest thanks for all your valuable help
