I used AppCleaner to delete an app, PeerGuardian, and one of the files related to the application was PeerGuardian.log. When i try to empty the trash it, I get a message saying, "The operation can't be completed because the item 'PeerGuardian.log' is in use." and the .log file becomes bigger by 5-10MB every time I try to delete it. Is there a way I can stop it from being in use? I already deleted every other file related to the application, Including the application itself.


Much appreciated
