    So I was having trouble viewing a few videos, and I dl'ed Windows Media Player for Mac (flip4mac wasn't working, either...), and that didn't work. So I'm trying to delete Media Player (appzapper sent it all to the trash bin), but whenever I try to empty Trash I get messages saying, "________ is locked and can't be removed".

    Any idea how to "unlock" something so it can be trashed?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hold down the option key while right clicking on the trash to select Empty Trash.

    Thanks for the tip. Everything worked well, except I had to hold down "ctrl" to bring up the context menu.
