There is always this file in the trash that I just can't get rid of.
I don't think it's anything disastrous, it just annoys me.
I've noticed though that if you right click for info, the file disappears,
only to magically reappear again.

Any one else experienced this ?

Here is an image of it.

Have you tried logging out then logging back in (or restarting) and then trying to delete it?

Yes have done all of this, it just won't delete permanently.

Can you also try holding down option and clicking on empty trash?

Go into bootcamp and run a scan disk.

I had this issue and it was a windows related (hidden) ./Trashes file.
