Help! I am using Wordpress-an older version (2 something). A Trojan horse has invaded my business website. I can't do anything to fix it without Avast warning me there is a Trojan horse and kicking me off the internet. They have added things to my site. I am concerned clients will also get it if they download from my website.
Can I get rid of it? Can I delete the whole website from my computer and start again with something besides Wordpress? Will it spread to other files? I have run scans and it does not pick up an other virus.

First clean your PC.
Use Malwarebytes, boot into safe mode, turn system restore OFF, run a full scan and remove infections, REBOOT
that should be a little better, turn system restore back ON if you want

A Trojan Horse is full of as much trickery as the mythological Trojan
Horse it was named after. The Trojan Horse, at first glance will appear
to be useful software
but will actually do damage once installed or run on your computer.
Those on the receiving end of a Trojan Horse are usually tricked into
opening them because they appear to be receiving legitimate software or
files from a legitimate source. When a Trojan is activated on your
computer, the results can vary. Some Trojans are designed to be more
annoying than malicious (like changing your desktop,
adding silly active desktop icons) or they can cause serious damage by
deleting files and destroying information on your system. Trojans are
also known to create a backdoor
on your computer that gives malicious users access to your system,
possibly allowing confidential or personal information to be
compromised. Unlike viruses and worms, Trojans do not reproduce by
infecting other files nor do they self-replicate.
