    Here is a new problem that I couldn't find even in the MRoogle search. Below is the error message I get when I try to empty the trash. Anyone with any ideas :confused:

    The operation can’t be completed because the item “MacProtectMonitor” is in use.

    Sounds like there's a running application process in the trash. Try restarting the computer.
