I run the SBS BPA and I fix the few errors it found.
Only one remaining is to upgrade Exchange 2007 from SP1 to SP3.
The SQLSERV.exe is not running continusly. It run sometimes for 1  hour then it stop.
Now the CPU is running between 2 and 5%

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

SP3 update will make a few more improvements.
Make sure to disable all Anti-Virus services and stop the Windows SBS Manager service before running the SP3 update. Can take up to one hour.
It won't ask, but restart server after update. It will restart the services you stopped automatically.
You should be all good after that.
Good Luck

You don't stop the Exchange services.
You do need to stop the Anti-Virus system you use. (Whatever that is) and Windows SBS MAnager service.
If the exchange services are turned off the update will fail because the updater thinks you do not have exchange installed.
Please also restart Server before the update.
Hope that makes sense.
