    OK I have this running with no problems for a number of days where only staff know
    it is there online, but when I launch it back into the real world it goes down

    What can I do, I am very disappointed that someone is bringing it down everynight

    I will move it back to my dedicated another day, can someone just confirm that when I disable the board it will stop the cron's running etc, I mean when I just hit 'run now' they run fine in a few seconds.
    You could always rename cron.php to crondis.php for the short time while your board is disabled....

    I don't I am just pointing it out.

    I cannot tell if the traffic goes up, I have asked for the logs to be looked at

    Which is why my very first question was "Does your traffic usage also go up during that time?" .

    CPU/Memory/MySQL Usage would show the account usage

    Because its always my account which is using the high load, cp updates and backup's don't use 50-90 of a server CPU

    You said you are on a shared server, correct? If so, then how do you know there are no cron jobs runnning duriing this time. Many hosts (the good ones) run daily backup scripts for instance.

    OK but I have the site running ok here for 2 nights on another server with no users using it.

    It also did happen before moving

    You said you changed hosts in two days. Did this also happen before moving servers? If not, it's probably the server itself. If yes and you only moved vB to the new server, then it has to be within vB.

    Check your server for rootkits.

    Any idea how this was fixed

    If I was to turn the board off would it stop all updates, cron-wise?
