Your server seems to have ISAPI_Rewrite installed, and the thread
running it is displaying an interactive dialog box (perhaps an error)
and waiting for a response. You might see the dialog if you log in to
the server console session but then again you might not.

It *might* be this problem that is causing the rest of the ASP threads
to pile up waiting for ISAPI_Rewrite to respond.

If you need this particular filter, see if there is a newer version than
the one you currently have.

Alternatively I could be completely wrong :-) It's worth looking at anyway.
