I think you have a good point here. I will reconsider 
by first investigating what the main cause might be.
Thanks a lot

End original message. ---------------------Considering that Apache runs for extended periods
on linux and other similar OS platforms without need for periodic restarts, I can't imagine
that it would need it on Windows either. In fact, I ran an instance of an older Apache version
(I don't recall which one) on a Windows 2000 machine for months at a time and never had a
problem with it. The only times that Apache installation was ever restarted were when the
machine was rebooted after software updates or installs.If Apache had any major memory leaks
or other problems that caused a need to be restarted, I can assure you it would not be used
as a production server by a large part of the ISP 
industry.Dragon~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Venimus, Saltavimus,
