    Unhappy delete .dmg?
    Okay, so I've looked through the forums and tried everyones suggestions (save a few, I'm sure) and I cannot for the life of me get this .dmg off my desktop.

    it is: OS_X_HP_Inkjet_Installer.dmg

    I don't even use that printer anymore. I cannot move it ANYWHERE. Not Macintosh HD, not applications- anywhere. When I try it says "The item "OS_X_HP_Inkjet_Installer.dmg" is being used by another task right now. (Other tasks include moving, copying, or emptying the Trash.) Try again when the task is complete."

    I've tried just opening the file, and nothing happens. Internet Explorer opens but it just stays a blank page!

    I hope I've given enough info for an answer.

    Oh, and hey.....I'm new. How are ya'll doing?

    from Finder press the combination of Shift+Command+U, then you'll be taken to the Utilities folder on your HD. The Activity Monitor should be at the top of the list. Just launch it and search for the process....

    spotlight search for activity monitor, see if you find some process running that may have something to do with HP or HP Pri9nter, or inkjet printer or something, select it and then click quit process
