Can't install Trend Micro OfficeScan Client Install, IE9, ActiveX

Logged in as Domain Admin, I am trying to install Trend Micro OfficeScan on a Windows Server 2008 Std x64 running IE9 using the Client Install. I am able to do this process on xp, vista, 2003 but this is the first time on 2008.

I get the following error when i go to the client installer link:

Message from webpage
Can not load ActiveX control successfully. Please reopen this page and accept to install the control.

After i click ok on the prompt the "Install Now" button becomes inactive or greyed out.

I do not see any prompt to allow ActiveX.

I am sure I need to change something relating to ActiveX under the Security tab in Internet Options but not sure what.

go to IE Tools, Internet Options, Security, Custom Level.
Enable "Run ActiveX controls and plugins" and also enable "Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting".

Do you mean Web Install or Client Install?

@serverman2008: These are both already enabled under Internet zone, Local intranet, and trusted. I even temporally enabled them under Restricted sites with no avail. I am having similar issue on a Windows 7 laptop --I keep getting Web browser-based client installation - Client installation was unsucessful.
