I have a very annoying problem. We have a Windows 2003 Terminal server Xeon 3Ghz with 3GB ram. Ten users
Ram and CPU never appeared to be over taxed bothered.
AV is Trend Micro with real time scanning disabled
Every other day, maybe consecutive days or work for a few days and then basically stop working . Users complain they can no longer access files on the main file server and if they log off , when they try and log back on the system says that it cannot load their user profile. (Local no roaming) Plenty of space on the C: Drive
We get different messages such as not being able to Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO,
An I/O operation initiated byt the Registry failed unrecoverably and a number of others.
I suspected system non-paged pool memory. I adjusted the registry as per some tech articles.
The really strange thing is that it only ever happens after 3:00 in the afternoon on an irregular basis.
