[MS4W-Users] issue with httpd.exe - using nearly 100% of cpu

I may have an issue with the apache that is included with the MS4W package.

My server was restarted late yesterday afternoon, and when I went in this morning it was running extremely slow, which is odd because this is on a new 8 core server with 20 GB of RAM.  It turns out that httpd.exe was using nearly 100% of the computer time.  Does anyone know what could be causing the problem?

I should mention the server has a complicated set up.  I am running two copies of MS4W, one of them is an older one that is compatible with our older mapping applications  (GeoMOOSE 2.2), and another one another partition that is running the beta version of Mapserver that includes Mapcache.  In addition we have ArcGIS Server which uses IIS.  The server has been stable the last several months.
