I recently tried vuze and hated it and threw it in the trash. This other program "tune up" came with it and i cannot remove it from my desktop into the trash nor can it be opened. It says" The operation can’t be completed because the item “TuneUp” is in use." but its not.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. SO ANNOYING

If OSX says it's in use, it probably is. It'll be running in the background. Probably on startup.
Go to Settings - User Accounts - select your account on the left then click on login items on the right. Select Tune-up if it's here then click the minus sign at the bottom of the list to remove it from starting on boot up.
Now start Activity manager and see if it's visible in there. If so stop the process. Now you can drag it to the bin.
If this doesn't work startup in safe mode Mac OS X: Starting up in Safe Mode and move to the trash from thereExternal hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
