Are their any errors in the event logs, like the Info Store going offline?

COM+ has determined that your machine is running very low on available memory.  In order to ensure proper system behavior, the activation of the component has been refused.  If this problem continues, either install more memory or increase the size of your paging file.  Memory statistics are: dwMemoryLoad = 93
ullTotalPhys = 0x0ffaa3000
ullAvailPhys = 0x00f9c7000
ullTotalPageFile = 0x114754000
ullAvailPageFile = 0x00c016000
ullTotalVirtual = 0x07ffe0000
ullAvailVirtual = 0x065aae000

Process Name: w3wp.exe
Comsvcs.dll file version: ENU 2001.12.4720.3959 shp

This sounds like the server doesn't have enough RAM for what you're asking it to do.  4GB is not enough these days when you're running Blackberry, Exchange, IIS, SharePoint etc etc.

I'd say that's where your problem lies.

OK - still sounds like a RAM issue particularly with the COM+ error message you posted.  If the server is a Dell server then let me know the model number  (not tag) and I'll look into it for you.

Looks like the PE 2950 supports up to 32GB of RAM so plenty of expansion space.  Just to be certain you can contact Dell and provide your Service Tag for them to check.
