Well for the first one, I would goto the Disk utility and run Repair Permissions. That should help!

the problem is there are 100s of files. these are my old roommates files on my machine, im the administrator so it shouldnt be a problem right? i thought there was some keyboard shortcut/stroke like OPTION when emptying that allowed you to override that.

ive tried restarting.

In your start-up screen(the one that has a blue apple at the top with "Finder" to its' right.
1. Go over to the right and click "GO".
2. Go down the menu and click "Applications".
3. In the menu that opens click on "Utilities".
4. In the menu that opens click on "Disk Utility".
5. In the menu that opens, your drive will be to the left. It will have a line with your hard drive size and another line with your your drive's name. Highlight your hard drive's name with a single click.
6. Go over to "First Aid" at the top and click.
7. Click "Verify Disk Permissions" and let it runs its' course.
8. Click "Repair Disk Permissions" if nessesary.

1. Once "First Aid" is selected, go over to the left and select your hard drive by the name you gave it.
2. I hope that the "Verify Disk Permissions" will become accessible now.
3. If not, let me know.
