When I attempt to empty trash, finder fires the following error: "The operation cannot be completed because the item ".$$ Stuffit Temp 1145622540" is in use" 'stop' 'continue' This file is not visible in trash, the only items present are one folder with another empty folder inside. I've tried using rm -rf ~/.Trash/* to no avail. It fires no errors but still doesn't empty the trash. I've also tried an applescript called 'Force Empty Trash 1.0', which I imagine does the same thing but also does nothing to the trash and fires no errors. Any ideas how to forcefully empty my trash would be seriously appreciated. It's driving me insane!
