Subject: GIGABYTE Dldrv2 ActiveX Control Multiple Vulnerabilities
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
