Not to be flamebait, I am admitting to being a newbie. I need help. That being dispensed with, I am running OSX 10.2.4, 320mb RAM, iMac DV400. I have a couple of "sample" apps on my desktop that I can't get to disappear. There is a Shocwave installer, and a demo of Photshop elements2 that refuse to leave my trash bin. Is there a way to kill this, and perhaps find other useless files to kill in the process? I would like to free up some of the measely 10gb on my hd. Any help would be remebered until mac's no longer exist, ecept for in the minds of those of us who remember to fold. I humbly thank any replies.
