I'm no longer able to empty my trash.  It is set to "secure empty trash" and when I tell it to empty I get the message that there are some locked items in the trash and do I want to empty all the items or just the unlocked ones.  When I tell it to "remove all items" it tells me the operation can't be completed because I don't have permission to access some of the items.  HELP!!!!!
