When I drag it to the trash it says "The item "blah blah blah.jpg" is being used by another task right now. (other tasks include moving, copying, or emptying the trash.) Try again when the other taskis complete." I did the system permission rebuild & restarted. I've held down "various" keys when sending to the trash. i am running 10.2 on a brand new 900mhz Ibook Would like osx better if stuff like this wasnt starting to already happen!!!!!! any suggestions for deleting the icon from the desktop?????
