Problems with services failing repeatedly with Server 2003

Hello all,

I am having problems with a server that has services that constantly fail on a regular basis.  The services are: IIS Admin Service, Microsoft Exchange IMAP4, Network News Transfer Protocol, Microsoft Exchange POP3, Microsoft Exchange Routing Engine, and Simple Mail Transfer Protocol.  Checking the event viewer, these services continuously fail throughout the day.  And eventually Exchange stops sending and receiving email.  Could someone please help me with this problem?

Thanks in advance,
LiquidHappy

I've seen similar instances of iis admin stopping and the others have a dependency on it.
do you have any third party software installed, such as spam blocker or AV

can you give more informations on the services (eventids, etc...)
have you other errors in your eventvwr ?

have you checked the disk space ?

What is the server purpose ? What are the applications running ?

Norton Antivirus is installed on the machine.  It does seem to be that those other services go out as soon as iis admin fails. The error code for iis admin is 7031 and the code for smtp is 7034.  Plenty of server space left.  The server is the only server in the company so it handles everything.  I found a patch on microsoft's website that seems to suggest the symtoms I am experiencing.  I am going to try the patch and see if that does it.

i would recommend turning off all third party apps for testing and see if the appropriate services fail again.
