    Try downloading and installing OnyX http://www.titanium.free.fr/ 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. :)
