SQL Job running powershell script

Hi Experts,
I am having issues with a SQL powershell job I have created :-

$IE=new-object -com internetexplorer.application

 The job ran 13 times (scheduled) with no issues then stopped running reporting the issue below :-

A job step received an error at line 1 in a PowerShell script. The corresponding line is '$IE=new-object -com internetexplorer.application'. Correct the script and reschedule the job. The error information returned by PowerShell is: 'Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80080005.

The account that is running the job has full local permissions.  The scanning and anti malware has been turned off

Any help would be appreciated.

THe SQL job wasn't running as an executable admin so didnt work.  Once corrected it worked well.
