'Trojan!link' virus or Malware

Somehow my computer has been infected with a "Trojan!link" virus. I have used Norton Power Eraser, which did not find it, and a combo of IExplore, Norton Power Eraser, and HitmanPro, but am unable to get it out. Norton did not stop this from getting into the computer. Any suggestions.    Windows 10, Norton Security Deluxe, Malwarebytes Anti Malware

Thanks in advance

How do you know your computer has been infected.

I tried the Norton Removal tool and it did not find anything. This may be in the hidden files, but I did not find it there either. I have tried four other programs also, but they tell me it is not there. Any Help would be appreciated greatly. Thanks MB
