I use Avast free.Scan my computer and Avast find a win32:BotX-gen (trj).I can't scan with virustotal. What is a BotX-gen?Keylogger,ransomware,data copier or something?Can i understand what it is doing on my computer?
 
I am distrustful of some offered free scans , as they might be incentivized towards pushing you to buy their paid products.

Install Malwarebytes Antimalware, and/or Hitman Pro 64, and scan away, let them delete whatever they find.

Its a trojan, and why is it still on your PC?

The exact workings don't matter. Why it is still there matters.

Actually i deleted it.I'm just wondering. I think he stayed on my computer for a while. What could he have done in that time?BotX-gen does the species have its own characteristics

It could have done multiple things:
Keylogger
Copied any personal files elsewhere
Left behind control software to make your system part of a botnet
Delayed action ransomware
All of the above
