I am assuming that you mean the Windows Recycle Bin.  It is an integral part of Windows, but you can set your computer so that the Recycle Bin icon does not appear on your desktop.  See this article.

 

If you don't mean the Windows Recycle Bin, then some more, specific information about what you mean exactly by "trash file" would be welcome to enable us to better assist you with your issue.

 

Have a great day.

Hello Phil

It has nothing to do with the windows recycle bin.
This a virus which creates a folder in different directories, I think its like the shortcut virus. Everytime I delete it, it comes back.
I would like advice on how to delete it permanently without formatting the laptop.

Regards

Baris

Baris:
 
Thank you for clarifying the issue for me that you are not referring to the Recycle Bin.
  
 

This a virus which creates a folder in different directories, I think its like the shortcut virus. Everytime I delete it, it comes back.

 
 
What is "it"?  What is/are the name(s) of the file(s)/folder(s) being created?  This is not necessarily a virus.  Windows, and other programs, frequently create legitimate files, temporary and otherwise.
 
I need more information about the precise names of any files or folders, and the path(s) to those files and folders.  I can't do much to help you without that information.
 
Some Windows File Explorer screenshots would be helpful.
 
Thank you and have a great day.
 
Regards,
