IIS 6.0 issues

I have bent over backwards trying to figure this out.
Im using Win2k3 SP1 with E2k3 SP2. Brand new server setup (Dell 2950) w/ 2 dual core proc and 4gb RAM
Using form based OWA with an SSL Key from an outside vendor
I have attached the screenshots of all the settings. The only other application on the machine is GFI MailArchiver (wasnt an issue on the old server)

If i reboot the server everything works fine for about an hour or so, and then my IIS crashes to the point that OWA or any other website hosted on the server will not work. I get a Page can not be displayed.

Checked event log and have gotten:
A process serving application pool 'ExchangeApplicationPool' exceeded time limits during shut down

Any ideas?

Do you get EventID:1013 and 7031 in the event log?
If the answer is yes you might have:
•      a corrupted message in the SMTP queue – in this case rename the Queue folder to something like Queue.old and restart IIS.
•      A corrupted IIS metabase – in this case try resetting the default virtual directories:

No problem, I actually found out what the issue was...Its a new server that utilizes TOE on the network interface, I had two cards enabled, one for the public network and the other directly connected to another server...seems as though IIS is trying to go out the second card because when its disabled...everything works fine.

Have you specified in IIS which IP address to be used?
What about the bindings of the NICS? If the second card has a lower priority TCP/IP offload should not be a problem.

Yes on the first question
And where would I look to change the priority?
