  1. In Group Policy, click User Configuration, click Internet Explorer Maintenance, and then click Security.
  2. Double-click Security Zones and Content Ratings, click Import the Current Security Zones Settings, and then click Modify Settings.
  3. Select the content zone in which you want to manage ActiveX controls, and then click Custom Level.
  4. In the Run ActiveX Controls and Plug-ins area, click Administrator Approved.
