          Just out of curiosity, what operating system and system software were you using?

                Neither at the time, ill be looking into using some next go around.

                Ive never had a problem with virus's on any of my windows boxes, and im mainly hosting my own sites on this server, and i didnt think anyone had a reason to be out to get me. >< bad judgement on my part i guess.

                  The first thing I would do is remove cpanel.

                      I hate Cpanel for this very reason, unstable, but I don't think I could go without it being that my customers need some way to interact with their account. Zachery on the other hand should be able to do without Cpanel being that its his personal box. Apache and MySQL is probably all he really needs.

                        I happen to like cpanel, and i host a few friends cpanel for me is simpiler to manage the sites that i host on the box that it is to try to setup each one by hand for me.

                          Maybe you could consider looking into Windows 2003 Server, you should like it.
