What is msadco.dll?

Part of Microsoft Data Access Components by Microsoft

What is it?

Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) is a set of software components that are used to provide applications a means to access data from various data storage sources, with a focus on access to Microsoft SQL Server.
Description of msadco.dll from Microsoft
MDAC is included with a large number of applications and Windows operating systems. Frequently, MDAC components are installed in silent mode; because of this behavior, the user might be unaware that a given application is even installing an MDAC update. In addition, some third-party applications are known to install only certain key parts of MDAC and to modify registry keys that MDAC components use without installing an entire MDAC package.
(msadco.dll is a system file that is installed with Windows)

How is msadco.dll loaded?

Safe for scripting control - msadco.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {BD96C556-65A3-11D0-983A-00C04FC29E33} with and identifier of CLSID\{BD96C556-65A3-11D0-983A-00C04FC29E33}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95801-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. Safe for scripting is a Windows policy that disables the Internet Explorer security prompt for Windows Installer scripts. It allows Web-based programs to install software on the computer without notifying the user. By default, when a script hosted by an Internet browser tries to install a program on the system, the system warns users and allows them to select or refuse the installation. This setting suppresses the warning and allows the installation to proceed.
Safe for initializing control - msadco.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {BD96C556-65A3-11D0-983A-00C04FC29E33} with and identifier of CLSID\{BD96C556-65A3-11D0-983A-00C04FC29E33}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95802-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. When a program is initialized, it can receive data from another program for initializing its state. This is a potential security hazard because the data could come from an untrusted source. Programs that guarantee no security breach regardless of the data source are considered safe for initialization and are registered as such.
