That's my fault becuase it's .Trash, not .Trashes.

And you're meant to be an expert on these matters tsk.

While it pains my ego, I won't bother worrying about it. I suspect that you will find that the answer has already been supplied. But anyway, good luck getting your answer!

Your ego will be happy to learn that the problem has been rectified. I tried what you told me replacing 'trashes' with 'trash' and it appears to have worked. So a mucho gracias is in order from me. Thanks again. Got there in the end.

Since we couldn't remove Windows Media Player.app, and "ls -lao" showed that it wasn't the applications bundle itself, this leads me to believe that something within the app's hierarchy had been changed to the immutable flag. Call me paranoid, but with immutable flag set (beleive me, this is an unusual occurance, and I don't know of anything that can will-nilly do this 'by accident'), coupled with the "HTM" running (which indicates to me, HTML, therefore, web page). I believe that someone was running a clandestined website on your Mac.

I'm curious if you would see apache running:

ps -aux | grep httpd

will tell you at least of there's a webserver running.

Glad you got rid of it at least.

This was the result. I don't think I had someone fiddling my mac? I replaced the numbers with X's as I wasn't sure whether someone would take advantage if I divulged all. There's always some net nerd out there with nothing better to do.

I'm trying to delete wmp for OS X as well, I held ctrl over the trash can and clicked on "empty trash" this did empty my trash but now when I try to use the new wmp the old one keeps popping up even though it's deleted... how on earth do I get rid of this thing????
