Try taking a look at this http://www.kixtart.org/

This is a logon script (free) that is awesome. At the top of the page you can download it, look at the manual, & it even has a command reference. You can do all things with kixstart that you can do with group policy & even more.

try to do the following
1-put the ocx file on a shared location which has a permission of everyone read (i.e. Network_PC_1\NewFolder) with a share name of NewFolder
2- create a new text file and write in it
         net use z: "\\Network_PC_1\NewFolder\"
         xcopy z:\ C:\NewFolder /y /e /v /d
         Regsvr32 "c:\NewFolder\fileName.ocx"
3- save the file with .bat extension
4- open an existing group policy or add a new one  expand computer configuration=>Windows Settings=> srcipts and open startup scripts
5- click add and browse for the .bat file and click ok
6- apply the policy on the required computers.

Best Regards
