IIS 6.0 - Microsoft VBScript compilation Out of memory

Our website has been running for years - www.mycarstats.com. Have made some minor enhancements in the past few weeks..

However, recently we started getting the following error when going to any one of a group of page on our website:
"Microsoft VBScript compilation (0x800A03E9) Out of memory".
We have 100's of these type pages for example - "http://www.mycarstats.com/reports/chevrolet/recalls.aspx".

If I down and up IIS 6.0, the issue is resolved and those type pages are then running  just fine again ...  till next time.

Need to permanently resolve this issue. I am also concerned that we are trying to be hacked.

Environment:
Windows 2003 R2
SQL Server 2005
IIS 6.0
Dell 2950 PowerEdge Server

Thanks

I browsed "http://www.mycarstats.com/reports/chevrolet/recalls.aspx"page but did not see the error on the page.
Please see the version of VBScript.dll , if it is 2.0 , then its a known bug "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/174685"  . One more possible cause for this error is VBScript has a maximum static string limit of 1,022 characters, and this error appears any time a line of code exceeds 1,022 characters. To fix it , please visit "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/174634"

Thanks ...  I will check this all out in the next day or so and let you know the results. The reason you did not see the issue is it shows up every once in a while. Once I clear it by Downing and Uping IIS it goes away till next time.
