Can't Empty Trash- Error 22
I was trying to get rid of a program I downloaded, must've done it wrong, then I read the right way to do it, but now it seems I can't empty the trash, maybe I have to reinstall the program first, because maybe there's a missing component that's preventing the trash to be emptied? :[

install Onyx then, run it, go to Utilitites tab to Trash and select Option / Delete and Execute

Thanks! I really appreciate your advice. :)

Hi, Thank You for the advice, it worked. I really appreciate it. :) Now if only I could fix the trackpad, it'd be great. This is the BEST machine I ever had!

Whats wrong with your trackpad ?

Quietone 04-03-2013 03:22 PM

trackpad keeps freezing while I'm scrolling, tech support couldn't help. :(

I was in the thread about trackpads and mentioned it there after someone else's post.

I had a movie in my trash that won't empty, been trying for months ;-(

pingjintao: have you:

a. tried to empty trash with the option key held down?
b. tried restarting the machine and then emptying the trash?

Have you run the Automation part of OnyX . Also try an SMC reset.
