    i am trying to uninstall chrome.. OSX lion..

    i went to the app folder and moved chrome to the trash.

    tried to empty trash and says it can't cuz its locked.

    i am in admin user right.. i unlock it.. try to empty trash.. says still locked.. over and over..

    i tried EVERYTHING in apple's support thing but still no luck.. how ironic that i despise chrome and everything google for this to happen.

    When it says locked, don't press "stop" press "continue." Also I rarely uninstall apps but when I do I don't drag them into the trash I use AppZapper to eliminate ALL of the files that the app created and it totally removes the app.

    In most cases, app removal software such as AppZapper and TrashIt doesn't do a thorough job of deleting files/folders related to deleted apps. For more information, read this.

    The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:
