    I am having some difficulties uninstalling aim, when i went into finder and clicked the folder dragged it to the trash and went to empty trash an window popped up saying:
    "The operation cannot be completed because the item "X.rsrc" is in use."
    And gave me an option to stop or continue

    And if u hit continue another window comes up saying the same thing for a different item, "Local Resources.rsrc" is in use

    And a few others. How can i get rid of these items?

    Sounds like AIM is still open. Worse case log off and then back on and empty the trash

    If you still have the application icon in your "Application" menu you can use AppZapper.

    See how that works:)
