Nt4 Server Service

On our NT4 Server, the task manager reports the server service to be using 160 MB of ram. This is excessive I know, plus I get regular out of virtual mem errors which I think I have put right by increasing the page file.
The thing is, most monday mornings users can't access this server as a result. And it requires a reboot which fixes this.
Any ideas?

Have you gotten the newest Service pack and other patches installed ?

 What have you added recently to the computer ?
  It sounds to me that some new program/update is causing the problems.

  I would do a windowsupdate.com visit to make sure that you have the newest updates.

In addition Cleanup the startup stuff. In win98/Win ME/Win XP -  Do a Start - Run - msconfig, startup Tab , or for win95 , NT or win2k,
Download the Startup COP a free pcmag utility from
http://www.zdnet.com/downloads/stories/info/0,,77594,.html
 Run it and it will show you everything that is listed in all the possible startup
                        places, and allow you to disable things one at a time until the problem is eliminated.
 A lot of probelms are caused by excess old baggage - programs that have not been properly  un-installed. Startup Cop will eliminate leftovers and un-wanted programs that you no longer want.
Older Antivirus programs and Norton Utilities have been known to cause problems
try disabling them also !

In addition check that you do not have any viruses/worms on the machine.

Turn off any unneeded services !

I hope this helps 1
