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:

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

- 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?

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.
