Hi Just found out that Background intelligent transfer service is not even installed on our machine.

Could this explain why we get the problems ?

Why didn't microsoft ask us to check this ????

DOHHHHHHH

We have solved the problem, but the solution was unrelated to the answer given.

We looked on the dell sever problem web site, and found that if a local network card
is fitted it should not be fitted in slot 5 or 6 (ours was 5) as it could give the memory parity error.

We moved the card to slot 1 and everyhing has worked fine since.

Because there was only one suggestion I have decided to award the poits to Microtech

Many thanks
