Hi

My Trash won't empty on my computer - I can sort of see the problem as I have bootcamp running Windows XP.
If you look in the attached picture you will see the directory the files are located in are in windows but for some reason they are in the OSX Trash and they wont empty. The trash in xp is empty.



How can I get rid of these?
QUOTE Thanks

Boot back to Windows XP. Open the File Explorer, make sure you have selected to show all hidden and system files, remove the attributes from that file (right click on file, select properties, uncheck appropriate boxes) and delete it from the Windows File Explorer.
