Please, somebody help me delete a partial file from my computer. I tried to download yahoo messenger to my computer and I accidentally downloaded 2 of them (I think),but only one was a full one. The other I cannot get rid of now. When I try to delete it, it says "The operation can’t be completed because the item “yahoomessenger_3.0.1build35554.dmg.download” is in use."

This is a lie. It is not in use. If I pull it out of the trash and try to open it it tells me this "Safari can't resume this download. The file “yahoomessenger_3.0.1build35554.dmg.download” doesn’t appear to be a valid download file."

How do I get rid of this vile corrupt file? It's driving me crazy and I want it OFF My computer.

Try fully quitting safari (not just closing all the windows) and then try deleting it. If this does not work then try logging out and back in and deleting it, or finally just restart and the next time you log in you should be able to delete the file.
