To trash a locked file,I found the problem is hidden files. control
click on the folders that won't open and click on reveal to open folder.
Then unlock hidden file with GETINFO!

I have tried almost every suggestion I have seen to delete a particular file. This file is on an external hard drive, it is locked and no matter what I do it will not go away. It is not a virus it is a fractal software program. I will take all the help I can get. Please be gentle I am new at this terminal window thing.
