Hello - I'm reaching out to the community to see if others have experienced similar issues. During a normal patch cycle, I installed McAfee's Host Intrusion Prevention Agent onto a Windows 2003 server, running IIS. Subsequently, IIS was restarting every couple minutes thereafter. We didn't notice it until Monday morning, when the users of applications on IIS started complaining about their applications logging them out every couple minutes. Looking in the system log, IIS resets quite regularly immediately following the installation of the agent.
I killed the McAfee agent process and the problems went away (IIS stopped resetting itself).
Has anyone else experienced this and/or are there any suggestions of what might cause it?
I just did a default install, nothing special.

I should be able to confirm this early next week - need to schedule some downtime. Thanks very much - it looks like it should solve the problem.
