    If you went from MDAC 2.7 SP1 with MS04-003 applied to W2K3 then look at the
    oledb32.dll. It probably did not get updated, we had this on all our W2K
    upgrades to W2K3. Copy the 2.8 version into both the system32\dllcache and
    the Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB folder. This will fix the
    problem and stop W2K3 file protection from replacing it.
