[MOSS2007] Fix for Event ID 6398 - Corrupted Memory

On several environments I ran into an issue which logged an event in the event log (event id 6398). The following event occures regularly:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Windows SharePoint Services 3
Event Category: Timer
Event ID: 6398
Date: 17-9-2007
Time: 9:38:18
User: N/A
Computer: Webserver
Description:The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.ApplicationServerAdministrationServiceJob (ID 3dc44d7a-008a-4c71-8e96-8c19da3d2ce2) threw an exception. More information is included below.

Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.

At first I found some solutions which directed me to a .NET patch (KB923028, also included in .NET v2.0 SP1). This patch solved the issue for a short time, but after a while the messages reappeared.

Last week I found KB article 946517, which provides a fix for IIS. This patches fixes the issue mentioned above. The message never appeared again.
