Im trying to delete a game and when I put it in the trash and "emptied trash" a box with an exclamation point in a yellow triangle popped up and said:

"the operation cannot be completed because the item 'wheel.map' is locked"

is there anyway to unlock this item so it can be deleted? :confused:
QUOTE Thanks

You may be able to just hold the option key while selecting the "Empty Trash" menu item.

Otherwise, do a get info on the file and deselect the "locked" option.
