Exchange Information store stopping

I have an exchange 2003 server and we keep getting these two messages and the information store service then stops, has anyone any ideas on what is causing this and how to fix it?

This first one is:

Event Type: Information
Event Source: MSExchangeIS
Event Category: Exchange VSS Writer
Event ID: 9602
Date:  3/4/2011
Time:  3:31:37 AM
User:  N/A
Computer: IBMEXCH
Exchange VSS Snapshot Writer has been Terminated.
For more information, click
About 3 minutes later:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: MSExchangeSA
Event Category: Monitoring
Event ID: 1005
Date:  3/4/2011
Time:  3:35:02 AM
User:  N/A
Computer: IBMEXCH

Any help appreciated

Thanks In Advance

So my guess is third part applications (non Microsoft).
If you have any Antivirus Software on the server, remove/uninstall it.
(disable won't do)
Run MSconfig and disable all third part services/applications.

- Enough space left on all partitions containing logfiles or DB's from exchange?
- logon service running?
- Domain Controller reachable?
- Global Catalog reachable?
- Name resolution works without problems?

Plenty of space on all partitions.

DC and GC all reachable and NS works without issue
