Hello, I had installed americas army on my 12" powerbook, but I rarly play it and wanted to uninstall it... However when I tried to drag it into the trash it said it was locked. So I opened up the info box, and the "locked" box was checked... However, the problem is that I cannot "uncheck" the box.

Any ideas?

QUOTE Thanks

are you using an admin account?try deleting the folders contents first, something in it is most likely locked, then try the entire folder.
