    Same issue I had with a different update a few months ago. The update just fails:

    That "patch" has been issued repeatedly since 2015 or earlier
    Windows nagware patches KB 2952664 and KB 2976978 install repeatedly | Computerworld

    I found a post from 2014 on that "patch"
    Microsoft Yanks Botched Patch Kb2949927, Re-Issues Kb2952664 - Archived News

    So it has been served up numerous times in 3 years. (I do have notes that it started out as optional but no date on my notes. I hid it when it was moved to recommended).

    You don't need it. I have never installed it. (4 Windows 7 computers in the house)
    Just hide it and concentrate on the useful patches.

    Good to hear! I kinda had a notion that was the case because I too saw it was optional a couple updates ago, and now all the sudden it's "important"? Thanks for confirming!
