    When I try to empty the trash WMP wont delete, all it will do is say "The opperation cannot be completed because the item "______" is locked" I have looked everywhere and there was no "unlock" feature. I have tried the Get info window to unlock it and no luck, it says its unlocked. If i hit continue another item _______ will come up. Any ideas?

    Right click on the program and then click Show Package Contents. There are a bunch of help files that are locked. You can go through and unlock each of the files, then you will be able to delete WMP.

    Try holding down the option (alt) key when choosing 'Empty trash'.
