SBS2011 keeps hitting 100% CPU


Recently two of my SBS2011 Boxes (different clients) have had issues where occasionally without me knowing they hit 100% CPU load which causes problems. Is there a known problem or something i need to look into troubleshooting?

The problem is when this happens the server becomes completely unresponsive. The best i can do is perform a forced software restart using CentraStage.

The issue was to do with the Exchange Server Message Store. What i did was found information on a registry fix where you can set the store to be a maximum size, this fixed the issue.
