I was using my computer and all of the sudden WinPatrol pops up with a dialog box saying that an ActiveX control is wanting to be registered. Under the name of RDS.DataSpace using msadco.dll, in C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\msadc. I have no idea why this popped up or what it does, it seems legtimate but the fact that it popped up randomly scares me a bit. I said no and tried to remove the files out of the folder but they keep coming back. What should I do?

Come to think of it, I did disable 'Diagnose Connection Problems' addon in Explorer, because I didn't feel I needed it, but I can't think that would happen, and I disabled it several hours before the message popped up.

Here is the log entry:
06/30/2008  10:59 PM	IEHELPER_Alert	TYPE_BHO	Microsoft Data Access Components	C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\SYSTEM\MSADC\MSADCO.DLL	Microsoft Data Access - Remote Data Services Data Control
