Dear All, I am having a serious problem. I have a system running in VB6 and SQL 2008 in the backend. It was running smooth for last three years. But for last three months all on a sudden I am facing a problem “Query Timeout expired”. Once the problem appears all users using the system see the same problem regardless large or small query. This is happening almost each week.

To solve the problem I restart the SQL service (NOT the server) and problem disappears. Can anyone suggest what might be the cause?

Some details of the system:

SQL Server: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP3) - 10.0.5512.0 (X64)
OS: Windows Server (R) Standard (SP2)

Processor: Intel(R) Xeon (R) 2.53 Ghz (2 Processors)
RAM: 24 GB
System Type: 64 Bit OS
