I have installed Office for mac and msn messenger - however, I went to update msn messenger, dragged the old one to the bin and tried to install the updated version, when I try and empty the trash I get the following errors:

1 - The operation cannot be completed because the item "MSN Messenger Daemon.rsrc" is in use

2 - The operation cannot be completed because the item "MSN Messenger Daemon" is in use

3 - The operation cannot be completed because the item "Alerts Daemon.rsrc" is in use

4 - The operation cannot be completed because the item "Alerts Daemon" is in use

5 - The operation cannot be completed because the item "Localized.rsrc" is in use

Is there any way of cleaning these up?

Regards

Wayne

Can't help you with your problem, but just wondering if you've seenAdium ? Unless you need MSN Messenger fo voice/video chat, then you should give Adium a quick try, it has a very nice interface, especially if you have a play with the preferences!

Does anyone know what the "The operation cannot be completed because the item "Alerts Daemon" is in use" problem is?

I am trying to update MSN Messenger and am receiving this error message?

That is the process that lets you know when you have new messages, etc.

You can try re-booting or stopping the process in Activity Monitor if it continues to run after you close the app.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
