    Every time I try to empty my trashcan (note: nothing is there except 2 files being mentioned that I can't see), it gives me about 5 pop-ups saying the following...

    • The operation can’t be completed because the item “prl_disp_service.socket” is in use.
    • The operation can’t be completed because the item “ParallelsDispatcherService” is in use.
    • The operation can’t be completed because the item “prl_naptd” is in use.
    • The operation can’t be completed because the item “prl_disp_service” is in use.
    • The operation can’t be completed because the item “libQtXmlPrl.4.dylib” is in use.
    • The operation can’t be completed because the item “libQtNetworkPrl.4.dylib” is in use.
    • The operation can’t be completed because the item “libQtGuiPrl.4.dylib” is in use.
    • The operation can’t be completed because the item “libQtCorePrl.4.dylib” is in use.
    • The operation can’t be completed because the item “libprl_sdk.dylib” is in use.

    I followed this MacRumors Guide by GGJstudios to empty EVERY file related to Parallels 6.

    Any ideas to get my trash can to normal? :(

    Thanks.

    You know, if you leave candy in the trash it attracts ants and the like.

    Can really muck up your system.

    At least your signature is honest XD

    UPDATE: Well what do you know...a simple shutdown cleared this issue up!

    Yay! :)

    This is an issue in Lion. I run across it quite frequently when installing or opening up a file, then trying to delete it. A fresh re-boot usually clears the issue.
