Watch Question

Are you running McAfee 8 on that server?  If so, start there.  What I have found suggests that Patch 7 might solve the problem.
Yup, we had issues with McAfee 8 without being patched here.

Another issue that we ran into at another time was old HP printer drivers... been on the server for ages and had no problem with them until we installed another Konica printer that it somehow clashed with.. real pain troublshooting it because even after uninstalling the Konica the issue persisted.  Just got lucky when I updated the HP 2550L driver and we never locked up again.
