It is frustrating when it appears a browser based program is not functioning correctly. Error 103 typically means the credentials in QBO do not match the credentials the bank has on file. This may be caused by damaged internet temp files or other browser process/function.

 

These steps will help to identify and resolve the issue when the browser temporary files, or other environment factor, are causing/contributing to the issue.

      Verify the process has stopped in the Windows task Manager.  

  1. Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc.
  2. Review Task Manager for the browser name after clearing cache and closing all browser windows.
  3. If present, right click the process and select End Task.

 

Login to bank website:

  1. Manually type the Username and Password.
  2. Verify ability to access accounts and view transactions.
  3. Logout of bank website.
