Here is my problem. My small company has a IIS 6.0 web server that runs a custom ASP .NET 2.0 application. When I click on this application on the server or when users TRY to connect to this server via the web interface, the page times out and the w3wp service on the server spikes to 100%. NOTHING has changed with this application and NO Microsoft updates have been applied. I have totally uninstall McAfee VirusScan 8.5, Rebooted this server multiple times, this application does have a application pool. NOTHING is working....

Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please note, I'm not a WEB developer :-(

Seems to be a problem within your applications code. Some sort of endless loop or similar could cause this behaviour.

Maybe you did change some configuration. It is nearly impossible to provide you with a solution without having any information and without anyone checking the code of the called script I think.

You could compare the creation date of the scripts with the ones in a backup that was made when app was running fine.

Maybe you could also check the eventlog for iis related entries.

Again I didn't change anything on the server. :-(

Right now I'm trying to do a search on the server to see what files have been modified... Maybe one of my end users could have done somethin... :-(
