While loading Virtual PC, I had a system crash and decided to throw everything away and start over. Everything loaded fine afterward but I had a folder that I now cannot throw away! In the trash it goes but when I empty it, it's still there. I've tried everything but it still remains. I've heard somewhere about "burning" it but I don't know what that is.

Ive got a G3 266 DT 32/4 zip running sys 8.0

You can try various options:
1- Restart your mac with extensions disabled and then try to empty trash whith the alt key preset.
2- Restart your mac from the cd Sistem Software, try to rebuilt the desktop of the hard drive and then do the first option.
