    I am at a loss. I was cleaning up my hard drive and throwing away documents and other things I no longer need. I had a duplicate of a document and move it to the trash can. When I click empty trash can, everything else disappears but this one document. I get an error message saying the action can not be completed cause the document is in use. It is a MS Word document and I made sure to completely close out of Word. I can not figure out how to delete this document. help! lol

    this happened to me once and it happened to be because Safari was still trying to download the document... so if its a document you tried downloading from Safari, try to clear out your download list
