    You may get this message when you try to move Antivirus One to the trash:
    "The item "Antivirus One" can’t be moved to the Trash because some of its extensions are in use."

    This message appears because components of Antivirus One are still running. Your Safari browser may still have an Antivirus One extension in use.

    1. Check if there is a small dot below the icon of the Safari browser.

      If there is a small dot, it means that it is still open in the background.
