Yesterday I attempted to turn on message indexing ... I told it to do a full index and the machine slowed to a halt for ONE user ... (Outlook couldnt connect, couldnt get to shares, etc) ... Then it slowly started affecting other users ...

I thought it had something to do with the indexing so I looked at the settings and it appeared to be fine (set to use minimal resources) ....

And the machine has done it 3 times now ...

I just turned the power off and back on to get the machine back up ... I looked in the event viewer and see the following error over and over at about the time it dies. The error is in the System area ...

Source: hpt3xx
EventID: 117

The driver for device \Device\scsi\hpt3xx1 detected a port timeout due to prolonged inactivity. All associated busses were reset in an effort to clear the condition.

Can anyone tell me what the problem might be and what to do to fix it? This is killing us.  : (
