I noticed that the KB2976978 update is back again. Could someone exactly tell me what is being updated, and what this update exactly does?

No one knows the real reason for the KB2976978 update! However, several people report this is part of Microsofts Spy/Snooping kit software. Which is used to collect data on windows users. Several people also reported that It also adds the same program to the, Windows Task Scheduler called "DoScheduledTelemetryRun" that KB 2952664 added to windows 7 back in 2015. Hope this helps.
