    error code -43
    After trying to delete some files, they still appear in the Trash, and so my Trash always looks like there is something in it. (Irritating me undescribably)

    The files themself have som strange (foreign?) characters in their names, that dont appear correctly (not a virus, since I created the files myself), and when I try to rename them I get this error :
    The operation could not be completer.
    An unexprected error occurred (error code -43)

    I've also tried deleting the files from the Terminal with this command ( "rm -Rf" on the directory containing the files) without luck.

    If anyone knows how to remove these files, and could tell me, I can finally start sleeping at night ... again.

    Gimmi,

    Did you ever figure this out? I've been having the exact same problem.

    Things to try:

    If you have a Mac that will boot into OS 9, drag the files out of the trashcan, boot into OS 9, and then try to trash them.

    If you don't have a Mac that can boot into OS 9, startup from your Mac OS X Installer CD-ROM and then try to trash the files.

    Thanks Randy! Trashing the file in OS 9 worked.
