It’s not the first time that I heard of my customers complaining about their anti-virus: after a certain activity (such as a regular scanning for system files), their application pools get restarted automatically. When this issue happens, some customers are seeing the following event in System Event Log: Log Name: System Source: Microsoft-Windows-WAS Date: XXXX…

However, as every web-application and hence every IIS Server, will behave differently depending on what will be executed, obviously the threshold for which performance will be impacted will vary a lot. Thus it’s…
