From IE
Tools-> Internet Options-> Security -> Internet -> Custom Level -> Enable (or set to Prompt) Download unsigned ActiveX Controls (other setting for ActiveX Controls also might be helpful to be not disabled)

Then you will see what is the real problem with your control.
I think that you have used the test certificate and it is not trusted by default. You can make it to be trusted on your computer or a limited set of other computers but if you want that customers to trust it - it must be issued by a Certificate Authority (CA)
