I recently downloaded Windows Media Player for my G5. For the record, I friggin' hate this player. Anyways, after I got all the use out of it I could, I decided to delete it.
Ok. I dragged the folder that had all its content to the trash, deleted it, and alas! It will will not get off of my computer. It proclaims, "wmhelp.htm is locked." I track down this file in Finder and there are tons of these files. How the heck can I get this crap off of my hard drive. Thank again -J
"To Uninstall Windows Media Player 7 for Mac or Windows Media Player 6.3 for Mac
To uninstall previous versions of the Player:
Drag the Windows Media Player folder to the Trash.
Double-click the System folder, double-click the Preferences folder, and then drag the Windows Media Player Prefs file to the Trash.
Double-click the System folder, double-click the Extensions folder, and then drag the following files, if present, to the Trash:
Acelp.net Decoder 05.0 kbps
Acelp.net Decoder 06.5 kbps
Acelp.net Decoder 08.5 kbps
Acelp.net Decoder 16.0 kbps
Mpeg Layer-3 Audio
VivoActive G723 Decoder
On the Special menu, click Empty Trash, and then click OK.
On the Special menu, click Restart."
Also, try repairing your permissions using Disk Utility and then see if the "Locked" message goes away when you try to delete the above files. You need to be an Admin user to delete them as well.
P.S. You may want to leave it installed. I hate it too, but occasionally you'll want/need to view wmv files.
