Microsoft released two downloads containing ActiveX Killbits for the 32-bit and the 64-bit flavors of Windows 7 Release Candidate Build 7100. The Cumulative Security Update for ActiveX Killbits for Windows 7 went live on the Microsoft Download Center on July 14th, 2009 and are currently available for users running the RC Build 7100 release of the next iteration of the Windows client. Although labeled a cumulative security update, fact  is that the ActiveX Killbits are not designed to patch a vulnerability in Windows 7. Users must regard them instead as a defense-in-depth measure and nothing more.
