Is there a Group Policy in Server 2K3 for this?

Hi guys!  Is there any type of Server 2003 Group Policy to allow Active X controls to download to user machines (XP Pro) using IE7?  I would prefer not to have to run around to each and every machine in the company to install them locally...is there another way to do this quickly and efficiently?

Thanks for your help, and sorry for the simplistic question - I'm having a brain cramp right now.
Watch Question

in the group policy under
computer configuration
admin templates
windows components
internet explorer
security features
restrict active x control

This policy setting enables applications hosting the Web Browser Control to block automatic prompting of ActiveX control installation.

If you enable this policy setting and enter a Value of 1, automatic prompting of ActiveX control installation is blocked. If you enter a Value of 0, automatic prompting of ActiveX control installation is allowed. The Value Name is the name of the executable. If a Value Name is empty or the Value is not 0 or 1, the policy setting is ignored.

Do not enter the Internet Explorer processes in this list: use the related Internet Explorer Processes policy to enable or disable IE processes. If the All Processes policy setting is enabled, the processes configured in this box take precedence over that setting.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the security feature is allowed.

sorry missed the "process list"  from the list under the restrict active x control

Thank you for the image - it led me in the right direction!
