Good day all!!

I am working in a win2k AD, on an older HP box running win2k, exchange5.5, OWA, and IIS5.  We are needing to reboot the exchange server atleast once a week, because, DLLHOST.EXE is "eating" memory.  I see more than one DLLHOST.exe, but one is usually at 0 k of memory, and the other is just growing.

My thoughts are that OWA, being ASP, is leaking memory, I haven't had much time to check out for MSKB ariticles, thought I would throw this one to the GURU's first.

Last time this happened (to me), we were upgrading to Exchange 2k at another client, and the issue never resurfaced, so I dropped it.

TIA!!!
