To remove a directory/folder, use the rmdir command or use rm -r. Be very careful when you use the minus r option.

Welcome to Darwin!
[modemcable076:~] XXXXXXXXX% rmdir /Users/avanos/Desktop/Windows\ media\ player.app
rmdir: /Users/avanos/Desktop/Windows media player.app: Directory not empty
[modemcable076:~] XXXXXXXXX% rm -r /Users/avanos/Desktop/Windows\ media\ player.app
override rwxrwxrwx avanos/staff uchg for /Users/avanos/Desktop/Windows media player.app/Contents/Resources/French.lproj/HelpPages/HelpPages idx?

And when I try to put it in the trash again and try to delete it , it says that everything is lock. And when I try to open the **** folder by double clicking, it says that : THE OPERATION COULD NOT BE COMPLETED. AN UNEXPECTED ERROR OCCURED (ERROR CODE 1000)
