Hi Guys,

I'm having a problem on a Windows 2003 server which is in an active active cluster.

Intermittently the box appears to loose all file associations so that you can't even run any .exe files. Also the cluster services stop running.

After a reboot the box is happy again but it keeps reaccuring.

I've scanned the box for viruses but none appear.

Any Ideas?

Thanks
