    HELLO EVERYONE. HELP NEEDED!
    pc became very slow, so I reboot it. Never came back on. Jams at the opening with "DELL" and does nothing.
    Removed the HD, connected it on a USB device. When I go to explore it on my other computer, it tells me to format this drive.
    HOW CAN I GET MY FILES BACK?

    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    If you truly suspect a trojan, you can try putting the drive back into the proper machine and using another machine try this Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper Beta | Microsoft Connect
    Download the program and it will build a bootable CD that you will be able to use to boot the problem PC and perform an offline (Operating System independent) scan of your computer for infections. Run a full system scan and see what shows up.
    Have to say that based on the message you received when attaching the drive to the other computer, it doesn't sound promising.
    Regards
    Randy
