    You can see the rather vague description of why KB976932 was updated at Description of Software Update Services and Windows Server Update Services changes in content for 2014. Just scroll down until you find KB976932 on July 29. Looks very innocuous just a metadata update - "Revising metadata to update supersedence".

    I think I'll install it, seeing as how you had no issues. I was afraid that the 2 MB might only be a "starter" file and that it would install the entire service pack, and then I'd have to reinstall all of the subsequent updates again. Glad to hear that isn't the case.

    Mystery update KB976932...

    I have two installs of Win7 32-bit (different partitions) on my 8 year old HP workstation.

    My production install DID NOT get this update, while my clean install (just MS software & patches) DID get this update. Go figure...

    However, I had a recurrance of an update problem, where some patch would break the ability to run programs, including the ability to roll back to the previous restore point. In this set of updates for Aug 2014, one of two optional updates caused this problem again, so I had to remove all using the ability to uninstall patches one at a time (this still worked), then install one at a time until I hit the problem. One patch, 2980245, was for a multiple file cut failure, while the other patch, 2970228, was for a Russian Ruble issue. Both are now hidden (did not identify which caused the issue).

    I installed 2980245 with no problems ( so far ) but I didn't install 2970228 because I don't need the Russian Ruble icon for anything that I know of.

    I just went throught the Aug patch Tuesday updates for my Win8.1 32-bit system. There were 15 available and 1 optional.

    One of the available updates, 2962409, was the June 2014 rollup of updates (why only put out now is unknown). Then, the OPTIONAL update was 2975719, which was the August 2014 rollup (huge at 112 meg, maybe it is the alledged Win8.2 or some such). But WHY OPTIONAL?

    This update also included the Russian Ruble fix.

    Everything worked.
