Hi, a) It freezes every hour at that time? Or it freezes at random hours, but when it does freeze it happens to be 58 minutes past the hour? b) Are you saying there's nothing extra installed at all? No non-default services/components? No security updates? No 3rd party programs (like antivirus etc)? c) What does the machine look like when it's "frozen"? Does it accept any user input, or it is completely "locked up"? If it's not completely locked up, what's consuming CPU etc? d) Is it possible that the hardware is faulty? e) Is it possible the machine has been compromised? (something like TCPView or netstat might help you here) Cheers Ken On Wed, 25 Aug 2004 18:07:27 -0500, jsWalter <jswalter at torres.ws> wrote: > Anyone here have any experience with Windows 2003 Server? > > It freezes at 58 minutes after the hour!
