    I down loaded a file trough Poisoned,
    and I cannot move or delete the file.
    I can move the folder the program is
    in, but it will not delete in the trash.
    If I try to move the file I get this meesage.

    The operation cannot be completed
    beacause one or more required items cannot be found (Error code -43)

    I have tried the following programs, Delete it, Force Delete, and Force Empty

    It's a 125meg .dmg file, and I want it gone. Any suggestions????? Please.

    Use the Terminal sudo rm command on it.

    If it is called file.dmg, navigate to the directory it is in and type "sudo rm file.dmg".
