Go to Tools > Internet Options > Security Settings Tab

From there you should be able to see what you need to fix, or if you have the site in your restricted list.

Howdy:

As per Microsoft..

To control notification for ActiveX controls and for file downloads, follow these steps:
1. In Internet Explorer, click Tools, and then click Internet Options.

2. Click the Security tab.

3. There are four security zones listed: • Internet
• Local intranet
• Trusted sites
• Restricted sites
Click the zone where you want to change the settings.

4. Under Security level for this zone, click Custom Level.

5. Under ActiveX controls and plug-ins, under Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls, click Disable or click Enable.

6. Under Downloads, under Automatic prompting for file downloads, click Disable or click Enable, and then click OK two times.
