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.
