When trying to empty my trash, it says I have over a thousand files in it, and I am not authorised to empty them.  On checking the trash folder it's clear there are only a few dozen files in it.  Any suggestions?

 

I ask because on downloading Scorch it seems to have stuffed up the

Sibelius 5 notation program and I now have all the noteheads gone on every song I've created.  On checking the Sibelius site on how to fix it, it tells me I need to trash some font files and empty the trash then procede.  I can't empty my trash. Hence the problem.  Thanks for suggestions on any way out of this.
