Finding a Trojan horse on a home computer

I suspect that my account information with AOL has be compromised. What file extensions can I look for on my home computer to see if I have a virus from a Trojan horse?
I don't think that you should try to find the Trojan horse (if it exists) by looking at file extensions. A better approach is to go to www.moosoft.com and download their free to evaluate scanner. Run it on your system and see if you do in fact have a Trojan horse.
