Fix Windows Update Error Code 80070003

I got this error code today on a Windows 7 PC after trying to install some windows updates

Code 8007003
Code 643

To fix it, follow the steps below;
  1. Click on the Start button (bottom left corner) and types services.msc and press enter (to open the Services control panel)
  2. Locate the Windows Update service. Right click it and select Stop

  3. Open Windows Explorer. Navigate to the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder. Delete everything within this folder - (this is where the windows updates are downloaded to before being installed)
  4. Go back to your list of services from Step 2. Right click the Windows Update service and select Start
  5. Go back to your windows updates and click Check for updates again and proceed to install them as you normally would
