IIS keeps crapping out

Our web server (which has been running well for over a year) has been crapping out.  I am getting Event id 105 (don't send me links to MS knowledge base article, I already have it) and their is a winserv service that is not running, but is set to automatic in services.  I am skeptical, because the winserv service is all lowercase, which seems out of place.  

BTW, running NT4 (why I don't know, not my decision).  

Any ideas?

I assume you have all the latest updates/hotfixes for Windows server and IIS.

See the findings.
Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

Yes .... Yes ... and Yes.  I did see the article that relates to NetBIOS possibly being corrupted, and am wondering if this has something to do with it.  

Do you know of another way to verify if the NetBIOS service is corrupt?  Everything seems okay right now, but this morning it flaked out two times to were I had to go into IIS admin and stop and restart the web sites.  

Also, is that winserv service normal?


Thanks a million for following up.

Maybe it's a virus or spyware or trojan or backdoor or ....

Cleaning your computer  - and protecting it in the future -  can't be answered with one issue.

As you can see in my url below there are at least 7 different issues, where you should decide 1 of each, or else you does'nt protect your computer at all.

The reason is, that the many different programs not always protects against each other, and each of them does'nt protect equally.

It's very important, that you study all of these issues in my knowledgebase (some of them are freeware):
http://www.tryware.dk/English/Knowledgebase/HowToProtectYourComputer.html

BTW: I'm using the Trend Micro virus-suite, and SoftScan , and haven't got any of my servers or computers infected since 1999.

Again, thanks for the plethora of info.  Since this afternoon when I have gotten involved, I have restarted IIS services and everything has been working fine so far.  

If nothing has happened by tomorrow afternoon at 5, i will reward the points.  If somethings else happens, I'll be sure to post back here.  Again, thanks for your help.
