    i have Xtorrent running and can't delete it or unmount it. in fact i cant even find the dang file unless i use spotlight.

    any help so i can get this off my computer? dragging it to the trash bin doesn't get rid of it because when i try to empty the bin, it says it's still in use.

    Use Spotlight if you have Tiger, to find all the components. Drag everything to the Trash and restart. Then you should be able to empty it. :)

    If the application is on use press "Command (apple) + option + Esc (escape)" and force quit the application. THEN drag everything to the trash.

    issue solved.

    i used "disk utility" to assist with the unmount.

    thank you all for the assistance!
