hi. i have several files that will not delete. they are in the trash, but when i go to empty trash, the dialogue box opens and sits doing nothing. the only way to cancel it is to force quit the finder but when i do that, the finder disappears - no title bar, no response when i click it in the dock - and there is nothing when i cmd-tab. i end up restarting computer and the finder works again and the files are still in the trash. any ideas?
Hi, have you tried holding down the Option key as you choose Empty Trash? Otherwise there are a few other tips which may help you here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1526 - if you haven't already tried them.
