ActiveX component can't create object

Everything was running smooth this morning and then I installed Adobe's IFilter.
All Of a sudden, my webserver will not run any database queries at all!!

I get the following error on any attempted connection to a database.

Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01AD)
ActiveX component can't create object
/logincheck.asp, line 19

Line 19:      Set objRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

I have no idea what this is..

It LOOKS like a registraton (regsvr32)  problem, the kind you get when you forget to register a dll or something.. but I have been running this server and that page for 3 years without a problem until today.

I am assuming it was the Adobe IFilter, but I cannot be sure.

What can I do???

 this is a production webserver.
