Cant delete files on Kingston Data Traveller

Hi Folks

My nephew has asked me to write in for help with the following:

1 He has 2 Kingston Data Traveller USB drives. He cannot delete files on them; they appear deleted but if he re-inserts the USB they're back as if by magic!

2 (maybe I should post this seperately?)...He's using AVG 8 and it treats everything on the USB as a Trojan. It thinks the USB drive has an exe extension.

So I tried it on my laptop, (Vista, AVG 7.5) and it was the same....all trojans.

Any suggestions....? Or has anyone had problems with (1) Kingston USBs or (2) AVG (perhaps alternatives?)
