Virtual Server 2005 guest is locked up

I have a Server 2003 running Virtual Server 2005.  It has about 10 servers running off of it.

The host has 16gb of ram.  

I had to reboot the host after running some updates.  

All the guest came up fine.  

I went on a vacation and when I came back I noticed one of my guests wasn't working and the processor usage on the host was maxed out.  

Of course my weekly backup ran when the guest went bad.  

This is a long shot, any suggestions, before I piss off some developers

have you tried limiting the maximum CPU usage.

when you say 'one of my guests wasn't working' - whats happening exactly?
