100% cpu usage on SQL server express

Has anyone had problems with SQL Server express maxing out the CPU with just 4 people in it? Mine will even stay maxed out at 2 am when no one is in. So far I have done the following without success:


- Rebooted the server

- Restarted SQL services

- Checked/Repaired/Reindexed inside actdiag

- Reboot again


I've been having this problem for a week and is making our ACT investment unusable any help would be appreciated.








Windows Server 2003 Standard SP1

Intel Xeon 3.2 GHZ (quad core but sql express is limited to one core anyway)

4 gig ram (2 gig available when everything is running)

Page File usage is about 1 gig. I've allocated 8 gig

Check to see if the folder containing the unsent emails is full.  I've seen this happpen before.  The folder will be on the server here: C:\Documents and Settings\<USER>\Application Data\ACT\ACT for Windows 9\HistoryQueue
