Windows Service written in C# Hangs

By mohithmohith ·
Hello All,

I have 3 windows services written in C#. I use them to process files from a folder into database and further to process the data into various SQL Tables.

All the services hang atleast once in a week stopping the entire process. The
files are queued up in the folders waiting to be processed. The services in the Service Control Manager seems to be running but they do not process any files. But when the processes are restarted, they run just fine until any one
hangs again. The following error is written to Event Viewer by Service Control Manager:

The [Service Name] service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this XX
time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 0 milliseconds: Restart Service.

Any help would be appreciated. (find code below)
