In the instructions it tells what you what file does what
windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe - This application installs Sp1 to a 32-bit machine running Windows 7.
windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe - This application installs Sp1 to a 64-bit machine running Windows 7

i have windows 7 -64b it
so the correct one is windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe 903.2 MB.ok
why i cant use for example , Windows_Win7SP1.7601.17514.101119-1850.IA64FRE.Symbols.msi?

That is not the service pack, it is a symbol package. Symbol packages are used to debug the service packs
