Is there any way to check a MSDE database for corruption?  I'm running Microsoft SBS 2003, and after a system crash the database used by SBSMONITORING started using a lot of memory, usually averaging over 500 MB.  This is causing the monitoring service itself to generate errors about an application using a higher than normal amount of memory.  My other option besides repairing the database is to reinstall that instance of MSDE, but I'm worried about what side effects that may have.
