I keep having problems when I try to empty my trash can. It always stopps and tell me that it can not be don because "Preferences" are in use or library or something else.
What can I do?

Hello,

-What version of OS X?
-Have you tried restarting the Mac, then attempting to empty the Trash?
-What are the files that are "stuck" in the Trash?
