    So i followed the directions to delete Perian from my computer. It's in the trash. But when i empty it, it says, "operation cannot be completed because the item Perian is in use" and there's no application open. can anyone help me? if it helps i'm using a mb w/ 10.5.1

    I won't promise but I think you can get rid of it if you "secure empty trash" in Finder ... If I'm wrong .... sorry ..... :eek:
