Which version of PHP are you using? Typically this means that php-cgi.exe terminated unexpectedly. It might be because of a genuine crash in php-cgi.exe or can be some other reason too. If you are using PHP5.3.2 I would advise switch back to PHP5.2.13 as
5.3 has still to evolve a lot.
If there is a crash, you can look at event viewer and see if there is any entry logged there. The entry will be of type 'Application Error' and details will list out which DLL is crashing.
Are you using any byte code caching solution like WINCACHE. Which version? Please move to latest stable version and ensure that the crash is not because of this DLL.

Could wincache be causing this?
I would say blaming something not based on facts is extremely bad. I was just making sure you are aware of the entire environment.
I checked the application log and don't see any PHP errors.
Well I asked you to check event viewer. It doesn't matter if your sight is crashing in 100 days or one hour. There has to be an entry in event viewer. If not, I am not sure what is causing these errors. Sorry about that but we need something to start debugging.
Just telling things that it is not working doesn't help.
See if http://support.microsoft.com/kb/286350 helps.
So in a nutshell we need to understand it better to fix it.
