SMS for SMTP Error and inetinfo.exe CPU consumption

Created: 25 Jan 2008 • Updated: 02 Mar 2009
Hello
I had Symantec Mail Security for SMTP 5.0.1 Patch 1.82 installed in a virtual machine (Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2) in VMWare ESX 3.0.1, with 4GB of RAM assigned.
I had problems with filter-hub crashes several times a month, and "memory allocation failed" messages in the log.
 
So, I decided to apply patch 1.87 to the product, and filter-hub problems seems to have solved, because we had not have crashes anymore.  (I'm still getting "memory allocation failed" in the log.)
 
But another problem began after applying the patch: inetinfo.exe is consuming a lot of CPU, so CPU utilization is always 100% now, and emails are processed real slowly.  (RAM utilization is about 1.3GB)
Can anyone help me to solve this problem?  Any ideas?
