Sharepoint 2007 server keeps freezing

Since last week every night my SharePoint virtual machine (sitting on our SP server)keeps freezing. I am locked and cannot restart and we have to restart the server by a hard reset each morning. I am  seeing the following 3 event ID's the my event log and it fills the log every minute. I think this is the cause, but not sure what event exactly they are being logged from:

Event ID 7076- Office SharePoint Server- An exception occurred while executing the application server admin job.

Event ID 6482- Office SharePoint Server- The application server admin job failed.

Event ID- Windows SharePoint Services 3- the execute method of job definition.

See attached file for more details. I googled but nothing is very specific. Event log

Have you also looked at ULS logs? What are the last items being logged before the freeze there?

I see some commentary here that the events you've identified above are relatively benign;

What is running around the time of the freeze in terms of timer jobs, search crawl etc?

The logs seem to mostly reference the following processes: owstimer.exe and w3wp.exe.

Do you want me to attach one? They basically seem to represent the same info in event log.

Nothing leaps out there. I'll ponder what else can be investigated.

Do you think this could cause the virtual SharePoint server to freeze?

i would disable the timer jobs which are failing to as the starting point, it would be nice if you can check the time when the server start to freeze, it might be a timerjob or a task scheduler that is causing issues

I stopped my backup and that seemed to do the trick, I am going to do some updates to fix the error and get my backups running again. I still am seeing an error on my virtual server (SharePoint site server). I can get in and seems to be working fine remotely, however I cannot access the host SharePoint server. It seems I cannot login and its frozen on host. The attached image is the error I get in my event logs. I don't want to do a hard reset but I may have to soon. This error may be why I am freezing, because the virtual stopped getting the other errors but I am getting the one below.Image1.jpg
