2003 server unresponsive/freezing

Microsoft Windows small business server...

Specs: Windows Server 2003 Small Business

We have a 2003 SBS server which freezes or gets really unresponive at times. You will click a window or tab and nothing will happen. You can still move the mouse around but clicking on nothing works then 5 or 10 seconds later it will start working. Other times you will click on something and it will work but it will take quite a while for the window to open and it slowly opens or changes tabs.

This is while there is no load on the server. Sometimes it works just fine but then other times we get this slowness or freezing.

Any idea what could be the cause... there are quite a re warnings and errors in the log but none of them relating to anything which could be causing a problem like this which we can see.

How many errors entries did you get lets say on one day.
It's always a good idea, to solve these problems first.
Maybe the event log is running out of space and the server has to delete the oldest entries, to make new entries.

What does the TaskManger show.
Any process, that consumes a lot of CPU time?

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

I would agree your first stop is to review your event viewer logs for red errors for a start.
