Ever since I installed the MAC OS X Update 10.7.4 I notice a new problem that seems to have popped up and gotten worse. When I drag a file [PDF, WMV or a JPG) out of an email onto my Desktop and then later move these to the Trash they will not go away. I get the following message when trying to empty trash:


"The operation can’t be completed because the item “XXXX.pdf” is in use."  I am offered STOP or CONTINUE choices but neither seem to do anything.


I then restart my machine and all seems fine again until I try this again...same hassle.  If I simply delete the email all is fine, but it is only when I drag the file to the desktop or other location and then try to delete it the problem comes back.


Anyone else have this problem and if so, how do we clean this up?


Thanks in advance! 



iMac, Mac OS X (10.7)
