This page offers some good advice for managing ActiveX controls using GPOs.  I think this might help:

One alternative they offer on that page is to add the site in question to the Trusted Sites Zone in Group Policy, then configure the “Establish ActiveX installation policy for sites in Trusted zones” setting under Computer Configuration \ Policies \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ActiveX Installer Service which will allow users to load the add on without getting prompted.

This site offers some more tips about managing ActiveX controls using Group Policy.
