Quicktime activeX plugin won't run

I'm running IE8 on Win7 and have Quicktime installed on every user's machine on my network. While logged on as a user, when I visit a site that requires the Quicktime ActiveX plugin, it doesn't work and I get the Quicktime logo with a question mark. However, when I visit the same site on the same machine while logged on as an admin, the plugin works.

What's being blocked and what do I need to change so that all users are able to utilize the Quicktime activeX plugin?

Thanks for your response, but the error is not with the installation since it works just fine under the admin account. It's something to do with security preventing the user account from running it properly. I just don't know what that prevention is.

Any thoughts?
