Hi, I recently installed a N64 emulator called Sixtyforce version 0.80 and I'm having a problem removing it. I've dragged the file and thrown it in the recyclin bin, but everytime i try to empty it, it says that the file is in use and i can't delete it. The program is not opened, i've restarted my mac, and i've tried booting in safe mode, none of which seems to work. Is their anyway i can remove this file without reformatting my 13" MBP? Thanks for any hints in advance.

How about re installing Sixtyforce then using Appcleaner to get rid of it and all its files. See if that sorts it.
