IIS Application Pool unexpectedly terminating?

    Hey all,

    I'm having a strange problem with Plesk. I'm running it in IIS 6.0 under Windows 2003 Server SP1 as opposed to Apache.

    When I start the Plesk service, everything is fine and I can log into Plesk correctly. However, if I let it sit for a while, the site will go offline.

    I investigated in the Event Viewer and I see the following event happen:

    Source: W3SVC
    Category: None
    Type: Warning
    Event ID: 1009
    Description: A process serving application pool 'PleskControlPanel' terminated unexpectedly. The process id was '2928.' The process exit code was '0xc0000005'

    ('PleskControlPanel' is the IIS application pool that the IIS Plesk Website is set to use)

    Sometimes that happens just a minute or so after the Plesk service starts, and sometimes Plesk runs fine for several hours until the above event happens, and then it goes offline.

    Has anybody ever had this happen? Anybody got any ideas? I've got a ticket open, but SWSoft folks haven't responded yet.

    Thanks in advance for any comments,

    Is there a solution for this problem ? What is causing this problem ?
