A catastrophic failure : Provider error '8000ffff'

I've been unable to log into my database application since this afternoon... I can load the ordinary HTML pages but when I try to login, it comes up with an error message. The error message that comes when I try to login is as follows:

Provider error '8000ffff'
Catastrophic failure

/hln/tools/libraries/utility.asp , line 12

And that line 12 contains the following code: connstr

where conn is the connection object, and connstr is the connection string (i.e DSNLess)

This problem happens frequently (maybe like twice a day) or once a week... It is very erratic... And once the error occurs, it does not resolve even if I refresh the page or even if I close the browser and load the page afresh... It only resolves when I restart IIS or reboot the system... I don't want to have to restart IIS or reboot the system all the time...

I'm running mysql 5.0 and using MySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51.12 driver..... running IIS on windows 2003 server

Can someone help me find a lasting solution to this.
