    I delete it and it comes back later. I only have macs on my network. Could it be from my Windows VM?

    Yes if you've shared your home folder.

    I'm not sure if these files are created by windows or OSX probably windows because OSX doesn't have a recycle bin, it has a trash bin. They shouldn't be a problem, so i wouldn't worry about it.

    I'm not worried about it, it is just annoying me.

    You could stop Windows from recreating these files by disabling the Recycle Bin in your VM if you so choose.
