    Many threads on this topic point to a corrupt profile, but I have tried creating a new profile and the problem still exists. Could the default profile be corrupted?

    Actually there are a couple of problems:

    1. The server disconnects (I am accessing it remotely) frequently for up to 2 minutes at a time. During this disconnected state it still appears to be running (based on task manager graph), but I have to wait until I connect again. When I say disconnect, I mean from the network. The following all fail: HTTP, FTP, VNC, RDP etc.

    2. When I do get access it is invariably very slow and task manager shows high CPU usage for csrss.exe as well as explorer.exe

    I should mention the server is acting primarily as a web server, is behind a firewall, and is actually a virtual machine. The host is Centos 5 running VMWare Server.

    Please let me know what other information you require.
