    Question 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?
    Sincerely, Quietone

    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!

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

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