    what are you trying to trash ? a file/picture/mp3 ? or something else ?

    It might be in use by a bit of teh OS ??

    Try restarting with the shift-key help down (so as not to load any user-specific items) move the item to teh trash and then hold down the option/alt key and select empty trash ...
