Trojans In Recycle Bin?
Doing a virus scan with AVG Anti-Virus, it detects two trojans in the recycle bin:

C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-2841594489-4255100500-2557012030-1000\$RK8IWXS.zip
C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-2841594489-4255100500-2557012030-1000\$RK8IWXS.zip:\tiny.nfo.viewer.exe

And when I try to remove them I get a message saying "Moved object is bigger than the archive size limit"

Can anyone tell me what these are and how to successfully remove them?

The error is being reported by AVG. It is telling you the files are larger that the maximum size for the Virus Vault. You can increase the size in AVG advanced settings. Or if the files are in the Recycle Bin, just empty it.

Sorry, I forgot to specify that when I go to the Recycle Bin, there's not actually anything there.
I'm just rescanning now with the increased Virus Vault to see if I can remove them.
