Exchange system attendant service starts then crashes.

Hi,
On our exchange server the Microsoft Exchange System attendant service is crashing. When I start it, it stops about 10 sec's later. The event log has this under application:

Type: Error
Source: Microsoft Exchange Server
Category: None
Event Id: 1000
Description: Faulting application mad.exe, version 6.5.7226.0, stamp 406d1e9b, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.2.3790.1830, stamp 424377d2, debug? 0, fault address 0x00012009.

I can also get this message from the sc query MSExchangeSA:

SERVICE_NAME: MSExchangeSA
        TYPE               : 10  WIN32_OWN_PROCESS
        STATE              : 1  STOPPED
                                (NOT_STOPPABLE, NOT_PAUSABLE, IGNORES_SHUTDOWN))

        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 1067  (0x42b)
        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0
        WAIT_HINT          : 0x0

Under system in event viewer it has this error:
Type: Error
Source: Service Control Manager
Category: None
Event Id: 7034
Description: The Microsoft Exchange System Attendant service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 11 time(s).

Thats all the error info I can find on it. Any Idea's??
Thanks
