Error 0x80043103, No error description available
If you encounter Error 0x80043103, No error description available, follow the solutions mentioned below to resolve the issue.
- Restart and retry
- Move the file to a different location and try
- Disable Windows Search Service and then delete
- Use the PowerShell command to delete
- Temporarily disable the firewall
- Delete the file in Clean Boot or Safe Mode
Let us talk about each one of them in detail.
1] Restart and retry
First of all, we need to reboot the system and then retry deleting the files. Sometimes, the issue can be nothing but a glitch and can be easily resolved by restarting all the Windows services once again. After restarting go to the same file you were trying to remove and delete it. Hopefully, this time you won’t get any error messages.
2] Move the file to a different location and try
Next up, let us move the file to a different location, and then try to delete it. This may not be a solution but is a very common workaround that can deploy. The reason why this would work is the lack of permission by the user to delete a file in that location, or a bug, either way, you will be able to delete the file or folder.
3] Disable Windows Search Service and then delete
Windows Search Service, at times, can overlap with the normal deletion process. This has been noted that sometimes stopping the service and deleting files can do the job for you. Also, there is no downside here as whenever we want, the Search service and be restarted. Now, in order to do the same, all you have to do is open the Services from the Start Menu, look for Windows Search, right-click on it, select Properties, select Disabled from the Startup option, and then click on the Stop button. After making all adjustments, restart your computer and then delete the file. Hopefully, this will do the job for you.
4] Use the PowerShell command to delete
If you get an error message while deleting a file or folder, there is a PowerShell command that you can use to delete them. This has worked for a lot of victims and should work for you as well.
Open PowerShell as an administrator from the Start Menu. Then, execute the following command.
Remove-Item <path of the folder or file> -Recurse -Force
This might not delete all the files, in that case, restart your system and then run the command again. Hopefully, your issue will be resolved.
5] Temporarily disable the firewall
Sometimes, the firewall can be extra protective and stop you from deleting some of the files. In that case, you can disable it temporarily and then delete those files. If you have a third-party antivirus, go ahead and disable its firewall. In case you are just using the Windows Defender Firewall, disable it using the subsequent steps.
- Open Control Panel.
- Go to Security & System > Windows Defender Firewall.
- Click on Turn Windows Defender Firewall on or off.
- Select Turn off Windows Defender Firewall for both Public and Private network settings.
Once you have disabled the firewall, check if the issue is resolved. Make sure to turn the antivirus or firewall on after deleting the files as that would make your computer vulnerable to threats.
6] Delete the file in Clean Boot or Safe Mode
There is a possibility that a third-party app is conflicting with Windows services and stopping you from deleting a file. In that case, you should perform Clean Boot and then delete the file. If you are able to delete the file and want to know what was causing the issue, enable services manually to find out which app is the culprit. Once you know which app is the cause, either delete the app or disable the associated service. This will do the trick for you.
We hope that you are able to resolve the issue using the solutions mentioned in this post.
