    Hi all again, once again I'm having a noob moment. I downloaded Microsoft Silverlight and for some reason I have the installer "Silverlight.dmg" in the Trash but can't delete it. It says it can't be deleted because it's in use but Silverlight is closed, any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry to annoy you guys.

    Most likely you still have the dmg file mounted in Finder. Open Finder and see if the dmg file is still showing as mounted in the sidebar under Devices. Click the unmount icon next to the dmg filename in the sidebar and it should then allow you to empty the trash.
