Windows 7: KB976932 "Windows 7 Service Pack 1" Installed Again Today??????

Seems hinky

It always is hinky to me how Microsoft isn't straightforward on the updates. This is not an update listed in the monthly
notices that was published. So why not? Why the mystery? I am not applying it on any of my 32 bit systems until I have
a good answer as to what it is all about. People should really require Microsoft (and any other vendor) to put forth the
full details on updates, what they are about and what they do. Pretty simple.

I PM'd the owner of this forum, Shawn Brink, about it and he tends to agree with us. He said it's probably simply a patch for the service pack. I would never refuse an update that's marked important just because of nebulous labelling. Meanwhile I'll Google it from time to time, but thus far nobody seems to know.

If you are that curious you could call Microsoft as they do provide free support for updates, but I'm not going to all that trouble.

It's being talked about elsewhere too. I think it's safe to say that this is a patch to SP1 that was maybe poorly labelled.

Why is Windows Update giving me Windows 7 Service Pack 1 when I have SP1

I installed all other updates but waited a day to install this update. It was installed in only a few seconds. Then I checked Event Viewer for Windows Logs\Setup for details:

Package KB2534366 was successfully changed to the Installed state

So it's definitely labeled wrong. Description for KB2534366 is:

When you try to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) on a computer that has more than 10 language packs installed, the computer stops responding at a black screen. Additionally, you receive an "0xC000009A" error message.
This issue occurs because the number of open registry key handles for subkeys that have the same name is limited to 65,535 in the registry. Each language pack that is installed on the computer increases the number of open registry key handles.
