    In my trash sits an item titled palm desktop and nothing else. When you empty the trash a message comes up saying the following... "The operation cannot be completed because the item Localized.rsrc is in use." The only thing running is finder and dashboard. When you control click Palm Desktop to see who has access, it claims that it can read/write and that I have permissions (admin). Any suggestions on how to rid of this from my trash? Thanks:confused:

    Try restarting and then try emptying it again. :)

    Or open Terminal in your Utilities folder and type the following:


    Code:
    rm -rf

    Then drag the files that won't delete into your open Terminal window. Doing so will delete the files forever so be careful what you drag. TrashIt may be better if you're not confident with Terminal. :)
