Hi,
to identify the issue please search inside the Sharepoint ULS log (c:\program files\common files\micosoft shared\web server extensions\14\logs) for the correlation id and attach the error. Thanks.

Here is the log files requested.  I hope they're the right ones.  It was rather confusing as to which ones I should select.

Thanks.

Hi,
only one log file attached and in this log file the correlation id is not included hence the error must be somewhere else.

Try to reproduce the behavior, note the date/time when the error occurs, wait 1-2 minutes and then get the log file from that timestamp.
Alternative: use this tool to search for the correlation id:
http://sharepointlogviewer.codeplex.com/
Be aware that the error message / relevant information could be splitted into multiple lines in the log file.

Thanks and HTH

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

RainerJ - I've installed the SharePoint Log Viewer and I can't seem to capture the error.  I have the viewer running, I can see entries populate every so often so I assume its running properly.

I then go to the SharePoint site and access the page which is having problems and wait and wait ... never see the correlation ID.

Any ideas?

Finally found out through a lengthy conversation with a Microsoft SharePoint engineer that the customer had about 2500 more entries in their calendar than they should have.  It was crashing the thing every time they tried to access it.  I gave the user the option of breaking the calendar into separate calendars to eliminate the bloated problem calendar or moving to another solution entirely.  They opt to break the calendar into smaller calendars.  Thanks for the help.
