What is your *reload* user profile? Make sure its just the
username and not a bunch of extra items.

Secondly, I would recommend stuffing a sock in Dr. Watson. To do
this, edit the regitry key:


and set it to 0. There are others you might want to adjust.
Then you can use something like server manager to restart a service
if it fails. This is also good for IIS if you have the infamous
inetinfo.exe crash problem. :)
