WMServer Error in Windows 2003 Server

The above error pops up regularly on a Windows 2003 Server domain controller.  Any ideas what is causing this error?  It is prohibitive to do much guesswork because this is at a 24 hour facility and obviously there will be no computer access while the domain controller is down.  If I need to post further info, please let me know.

Are you using Windows Media Services on your server? I suppose no, because you say it is a domain server. In that case you can disable this service that is one of te responsables of VMServer.exe

As far as I know Windows Media Services is not being used on this computer.  How do I disable it?
fundacionrtsAdministrador de SistemasCommented:
I never install Windows Media Services on my servers, but the components are under

Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components > Windows Media Services

If you run Configure Your Server Wizard you see that Streaming Media Server is installed? Youcan uninstall it using this wizard too.

Uninstalled.  This appears to have solved the problem.  I will monitor until the morning and give credit at that time if nothing further pops up.

Thank you.

That did the job.  Looks like this was inadvertently installed as a Windows update from WSUS.  I authorize the updates, so I take the blame.

Thanks for the help.
