secure empty trash in 10.5.8

Hi ,i did an "archive install" and as a result aquired a previous systems folder.
I will hang on to this a while but at the time found i also had two other from 2010 -2011.
I put them in the trash to delete them to free up space, unfortunately they started to "secure empty and it is taking forever as there are more than one and half million files.
Already going one day.
Is there a way to stop the secure trash and empty normally?
Also these two folders are using a whole load of GBs.
thanks in advance
