How to allow ActiveX control to install via a Group Policy.

I'm trying to figure out how to allow a specific ActiveX control to automatically install on a user's computer.  Currently, a user goes to the web page and it prompts them to install a file (activex.cab).  The users only have the button to click OK.  If the user then goes into IE and changes to prompt for unsigned ActiveX controls the user can then go to the site again and get the same prompt for the activex.cab file but with a button to install.  The user can then install it and be on their way.

How can I create a group policy to automatically install the ActiveX component without requiring any user intervention?

Thanks.

Computer Configuration and User Configuration, in the Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Security Page\Local Machine Zone


1. Download Signed ActiveX Controls                          Enable (Don't select Prompt)
2. Download UnSigned ActiveX Controls                      Enable
