    Try right clicking on the file, to bring up the info image on the file. Click the unlock button and try again.

    One other method to try, close all windows, click on finder at the top of the screen, then on Secure Empty Trash. May work for you, may not. It has in the past for me.

    I use two small apps to remove stubborn files from the trash. One is called "trash it" and the other is "force empty trash" and they both work well. Just google it for Mac.

    Try secure empty trash. It works for me consistently.
