    I wanted to empty the Trash folder on my Macbook, but it didn't work.
    I found a solution on the net, namely; open etrminal and give the command "rm -rf ~/.Trash/*". This worked but one folder was not gone.
    In the folder there is a file named "hjvjte.exe". A quick search on the internet revealed that this is a trojan horse...

    Can somebody help on how to remove it anyway?


    Kind regards,

    Since it's a Windows program, it can't harm your Mac in any way.

    You can't empty the Trash or move a file to the Trash
