Experts,

I to know if it's possible to reset a process on our server automatically.  If so how?

There seems to be a memory leak somewhere and as a temporary fix to a lagging server this seems like it might do the trick.  I don't need help troubleshooting the issue because there is enough information on that all over the site.  Just need to automate the resetting of the DLLHOST.exe process.

Thanks in advance!

OK, I'll increase the point value, btw why wouldn't you always use the max point values for these questions? What do the giving of points do for the person asking the questions?

>> btw why wouldn't you always use the max point values for these questions?

Limited members (i.e. those not answering questions, and not paying for PS) have only 500 points to ask questions at a given time. So they have to watch if they want to ask multiple questions.

What do the giving of points do for the person asking the questions?

Its incentive for the Experts to respond to your question. We accumulate points to get certificate levels, free PS and free t-shirts (and hopefully other choices in the future); and bragging rights. ;-)

As far as your problem, I would have found the service name and issued a net stop and net start command to restart the services. From a command line
---------------------------------------------
NET STOP "The Service name in Computer Management"
NET START "The Service name in Computer Management"
---------------------------------------------
Dump the commands into a batch file and then run it as a scheduled task.

But isn't IIS 5 pretty much dead and riddled with security holes?
