OS X 10.5.6 Trash can not empty
  

I have a problem. For several weeks now.

On my Macbook I have a while 2 folders removed. No problem, until I was emptying the trash. however, every time the same 2 folders Back. It is crazy that I admin password must be completed before the folders are copied ...

If I use Command + Option + Esc shows start Finder again, the trash or empty, at the next boot, they are really back. Someone an idea how I can overcome this?
thank you

to ll ~ /. Trash / * to do and the outcome here so that we can see what is wrong, then rm-RFI ~ /. Trash / * so that you do not wastage things that you actually still want to keep (i ask of everything for a confirmation)
