We are running IIS 6.0 And I work for a Web Hosting company. This is an error I am getting on one of the virtual sites each time I try and get it going.

The following is a error that I am getting when the stite is started.

nt Type:      Error
Event Source:      W3SVC
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1059
Date:            4/8/2006
Time:            7:48:12 AM
User:            N/A
Computer:      MAXIMA6
A failure was encountered while launching the process serving application pool 'santabaia3'.

The application pool has been disabled.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

I can't find anything on MS Site to show me what the error is and as soon as I restart the application pool it stops with the above error on the Systen event log.
