For further information I have also tried a terminal command 'chflags -R nouchg '
This didn't work either
I have a MacBook intel running 10.6.4
When I try to empty the trash I get a message, 'The operation can?t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -8003)'
I have restarted, repaired permissions and verified the disk, all ok but the message still appears with both secure & normal trash emptying.
This can't be right.
