    I took the Yahoo Messenger App from the App's folder and draged it to the trash. When I go to empty trash it brings up a box that says that it can not because yahoo messenger is in use.
    I have logged out of yahoo messenger. What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks for the help!

    Is Yahoo Messenger actually closed? If not, close it, then try deleting it.

    Try rebooting then empting the trash.


    If that still doesn't work, open the terminal and type this:
    rm -rf ~/.Trash/*

    I figured it out. Another account user had yahoo messenger open. When I quit the program on that account I was able to empty the trash can.
    Thank you for your help.
