What controls active X installers

Where do I check in IE,6,7,8 to see what allows Active X to be installed or not. I need to identify all settings that will control this and how they have to be set to allow active X to be installed.

2 Solutions
Close all but one IE window first.

Tools>Security Tab>Custom Level

Scroll down to ActiveX controls and Plug-ins
Select "Enable" for each of these:
 "Download Signed ActiveX Controls," "Run ActiveX Controls and Plug-ins" and "Script ActiveX Controls Marked Safe for Scripting."

ActiveX Opt-In applies to controls run in Internet Explorer and any applications which opt-in to Manage Add-ons through the feature control key. ActiveX Opt-In can be enabled or disabled on a zone-by-zone basis through the IE Security Settings panel. The setting, "Allow previously unused ActiveX controls to run without prompt" enables and disables the feature. By default, ActiveX Opt-In applies to controls used on the Internet and restricted sites zones while controls used on an intranet and trusted sites zones will not be affected by ActiveX Opt-In.
