Exchange crashes 9582 w/ error

I have an Exchange Server that crashes with intermittent problems.  The only event I have is MSSExchangeIS reporting 9582, every hour after starting Exchange services.

The virtual memory necessary to run your Exchange server is fragmented  in such a way that performance may be affected. It is highly recommended  that you restart all Exchange services to correct this issue.

I have read several others with the error, but not a conclusive fix.  I do not run IMAP, don't have a cluster and I use W2k Standard, so can't use the /3 switch.

I did note that a couple of people suggested stop using anti-virus.  I current have McAfee VS7.0 installed with GroupShield 5.2.  I do have MS/McAfee recommended exclusions for the file system scanner.   I hate to think the answer is stop using a/v.  Has anyone else resolved this error.

2 things you can do.  First (sounds kinda dumb), remove some of the memory.  Perhaps take it down to 1.5gb.  Exchange 2000 running on Windows 2000 Standard can't utilize memory nearly as well as if it was running on W2K Advanced Server with the /3gb switch in the boot.ini.  Refer to http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=266096 for more details.  Also refer to:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;296073

Second, refer to the following article that describes in great detail why you are receiving this error.  This also details ways to tune Exchange so that you don't have to remove memory.  There are 3 parts to it.  Read all 3.

Bottom line is that with that much memory, you ought to be running Advanced server.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Yea, started doing this after I left Microsoft, just to keep up with the world, and it turned into fun :). It's a good place to help a lot of people, just don't get caught up in the emotions out here. Some of the experts can be upsetting at times, it's best just to ignore it and move on. But you're a really calm guy, shouldn't be a problem for you :)

I've tried everything to fix this problem as everyone suggested but the 9582 warning still comes up which ended at restarting the Information Store. I know there's a solution to this problem somehow. This may be a good place to get it.

My Server Config:

Dell Poweredge 6500
3 Processors (700Mhz)
Memory = 2 GB
OS = Win2K Standard (SP4)
Exchange = 2000 (SP3) with August 31 2004 SP3 Rollup Patch
Antivirus = Antigen
Backup = BackupExec 9.0 Remote agent

Actions taken to fix the problem.
1. I can't use the 3/GB because I'm running Win2KStandard
2. Modified msExchESEParamCacheSizeMax to 196608 (768 Mb)
3. Changed HeapDeCommitFreeBlockThreshold to 262144

The last option I haven't done yet is to remove a memory chip, which I'm so hesitant of doing. Any other suggestions?

Don't bother removing the memory, not worth your time. Did you restart the store after the ADSI changes?

Yes I restarted the server. Would the 3 processors affect HeapDeCommitFreeBlockThreshold  and msExchESEParamCacheSizeMax ?
