I have some files that were from my classic install, of which is now removed (Long story) ... and will not delete.... I can not chmod , sudo rm them. I get denied on everything I try and do..

Any tricks to "By gosh removing (Nuke, Explode, set fire, sink to the bottom of the ocean) a file that just will not go away ?

Thanks,

Yes.... and the lock checkbox is also greyed out, not letting me unlock it....

hmm... maybe they're owned by another user? sudo chown them to yourself, then see if you can unlock them.

well that's what I have been trying but when I do I get this, on any chmod option I try......

[localhost:/transfer/vncbeta3ppc] grininmonkey% sudo chmod go= "ReadMe - Visual Balloons"
Password:
chmod: ReadMe - Visual Balloons: Operation not permitted

While you're sitting in Terminal, what does

ls -lo <filename>

show? If you see 'uchg' in there, then run

sudo chflags nouchg <filename>

then try what you were trying to do before. See 'man chflags' for some more information.
