It is stated above:"Solution
Set the kill-bit for the affected ActiveX control."
My question is: How can I do that? I'm a simple user, not an expert.
Thx (if I get an answer)

Killbits are usually set through a Microsoft Update at the request of the vendor.

In the unlikely event that you want to try it yourself, the information is here:

This is the downloader that GigaByte use to download BIOS updates. As you don't need it most of the time, rather than messing with killbits I would either:
1. Uninstall it if it appears in Add/Remove Programs
2. Use Manage Addons in Internet Explorer Tools to disable iit
