Infected Reimage - Can not Dump 2.2million items
I think I have been infected by 3 things at once.
And another I can not name.
I dumped some 50% time machine files and found the location of the virus/malware I can not name. I put them all in the trash. I started emptying the trash on Wednesday night at about 10pm. It said 2.2million files to be emptied. So I switched to SafeMode to do the dump. It started doing its thing.
It kept giving me pop-ups about "file in use by X". so I had to keep watch so I could click skip or continue. It got down to 1,064,820 and froze.
Is there an ultra hard dump that will either automatically ignore/skip any file in use and dump the rest?
Is there another way to dump the trash in a more aggressive fashion?

Try going to Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor and quit WebExplorer. Then drag it to the Trash.
