    I'm dragging around StuffIt Engine.cfm because i can :p (Isn't .cfm a ColdfFusion script?)

    Anyway, i put the StuffIt Deluxe 6 engine instead, so i trashed this one. Then questioning whether i really should trash it i dragged it onto my HD. Now i don't have permission to trash it or move it. I'm the owner of the damn computer how can't i? Err...

    And you can't change them either. This is pissing me off. Somebody help me!

    ok, the file is either locked, or you need to su to root in the terminal, and before closing terminal you can delete anything you want.. if you want the su to remain in affect until you logout, type "exit" into the terminal before you quit. this will keep your super user status.

    Open terminal
    Type su
    type in your log and pass when it asks you.
    you're done
    do the stuff you need to do as root
    switch back to console
    type "exit"
