Viruses aren't really sent to the Recycle Bin; the files infected with viruses are sent there. So, even if an infected file is permanently deleted, it does not mean your computer is safe. Further, many sophisticated virus writers can make their malicious code resistant to deletion and can even propagate when the user tries to delete them. It's important to use a good anti-virus program -- there are more than several out there, including the free program, AVG -- almost all of which create a quarantine and provide safe, thorough removal.

Viruses can slow you down and permanently damage your PC, some viruses are less harmful and won't cause any, but it's always on the safe side to get virus protection. I believe AVG is a free anti-virus software, I recommend downloading it off a safe site like Cnet.
