What event IDs are you logging?

You can try using IISstate.exe to generate a log that should help troubleshoot the problem.

"IIS 6.0 Resource Kit Tools (IIS 6.0)

IISState (IISState.exe and IISState.log)
Use IISState to troubleshoot slow performance and application failures for applications running on IIS 6.0. IISState can also help you identify the causes of ASP0115 error messages and the causes of errors detected by Dr. Watson. For example, IISState can analyze an application like Inetinfo.exe as it executes, record all running threads, and display and log the analysis. IISState also identifies each thread, and displays the raw thread stack and the time that each thread spent executing in kernel and user modes. IISState is a command-line tool."
