    There is a file in my Trash that I cannot delete. It says the file does not exist... any help? Thanks! :)

    Try downloading and installing OnyX it's a freeware utility. When the Onyx toolbar pops up click on Cleaning near the bottom there will be a check box that says "Force Empty Trash" check it and then click the "Execute" button.

    Also, restarting can sometimes clear up file deleting errors. :)
