I followed instructions to clear Windows7 update history, tried to delete all in the Datastore file but on double clicking the folder nothing appeared so unable to deletethe update history.

Any suggestions?

If you are saying there is nothing showing in your folder then your files may be hidden - see here to show hidden files & folders

Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.

Click the View tab.

Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then click OK.
