Best thing to do with threats is just remove them with your anti-virus/spyware removing utils, moving to vault sends it to a secluded folder which the file cannot interact with anything else but deleting the file will completly remove it and that won't cause a threat.

It may be a false positive {Not a Trojan}

Try a scan with Malwarebyetes Antimalware to double check
