I get several warnings on every page which I visit asking me "Do you want to allow software such as ActiveX controls and plug-ins to run?".

Where do I turn this off? The machine is a Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit.

Launch Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options. Click on security tab, Click on Custom level and change as you desire. I'd be careful above allowing Allowing ActiveX controls on an (I'm assuming) a server machine.

Unless you're versed in IT Security or at least have some experience regarding security, I'd recommend NOT to disable it.

Especially if it's a server machine! ActiveX can be one of the worst security risks.
