    Am attempting to delete applications I no longer use/want which were brought over to my imac from G4 when using migration assistant. (Ugg!)

    Have something called BJAutoLaunchX which I have not used since 8/06. When attempting to put in trash, get message that I couldn't because it is open. It wasn't restarted computer thinking it would close. It won't.

    Anyone have a way of trashing this app?

    First, check if it's in your Login Items (System Preferences >> Accounts). If it's in there, delete it.

    Then you could try quitting it using Activitiy Monitor (select it and click "Quit Process" at the top).
