while installing Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2505438). I get error code 80070003.Help>

 I try to delete the temp update files but computer says "the action can't be completed because the file is open in application experience. This is for the datastore.edb file. For the logs file the error is "the action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program" Thanks



So does the same thing happen when you reboot into Safe Mode (F-8) and try to deleted?

Clean up the system (clearing out all the Temp/Tmp folders, and included all offline content, clearing the browser TIF, Delete Cookies.

Do a Disk CleanUp in Safe Mode, Click the Start button, In the Search box, type Disk Cleanup, and then, in the list of results, click Disk Cleanup.

Best and easier to use - ccleaner.

Note, uncheck Yahoo Toolbar

The Slim version does not contain the disgusted Yahoo Toolbar

I use the slim build at the bottom.



Refer the below Microsoft article and try the steps mentioned and check if it works
