Cant delete an application because "I dont have permission to access items"
I am using a MAC OS X version 10.6.7
I am the sole owner and the administrator.
My problem is that I cant delete an application that I want to get rid of.
I go to finder - Macintosh HD - Applications- then drag the application to the trash.
However I then get the following message
"The operation canít be completed because you donít have permission to access some of the items."
Its really frustrating as I am the owner of this mac!!
ANY HELP WOULD BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.

The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:

I launched activity monitor and changed to "all processes" but didnt see any process name called "pokerstars"
Also i followed the link you sent and followed the steps to manually delete.
However after searching and finding the files i still cant delete it.
I right click and choose "move to trash" but the same error comes up, saying i dont have permission to access some of the items
What should i do ?

Solving Trash Problems

Unfortunately I havent had any luck
1- Im sure the file is not locked. because when i click "get info" the option 'locked' (under "open using Rosetta") is unselected , Although it is invisible and i cant seem to be able to change it in anyway
2- I altered the sharing and permission so that as administrator I HAVE READ AND WRITE privalleges.
3- I downloaded the software "trash it" its 4.2 mb BUT i dont know how to use this software. Do you have to install it ? In the downloads section its shown as a file "Trash 4.1" when i open it there are four options , 24U installer / Docs and URLS / Drag content to desktop / secure delete.
Im not sure how to operate THRASH IT do we have to install it ? How do i operate it ?
It feels like i will never be able to delete this stupid application. Its my Mac so its frustrating that I cant delete an application that I downloaded !!
Any help is highly appreciated.
