SharePoint Exception Errors: Event ID 6398, Event ID 6482, Event ID 7076


I had previously written a post about the process in IIS being locked, and therefore sites becoming unmanageable in IIS Manager. 

The same resolution for that error (Hotfix provided by Microsoft) applies to these errors as well.   You will see them in the Application Event Log typically after a MOSS installation.  To resolve these errors, you need to apply the hotfix which is found in this knowledge base article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946517

note: I recently saw a thread on TechNet forums where an inquiry was made if this was resolved in the Infrastructure Update for SharePoint.  It's not.  This hotfix applies to IIS 6.0 and IIS 7.0, while the Infrastructure Update is for SharePoint.
