SharePoint Event Log Error 7076 – “Not enough storage is available to process this command”

We received this message in our farm environment every 5 days after rebooting all servers within the farm.  The message appeared to be harmless, functionality-wise, but we wanted it resolved anyways.

These messages would repeat in the Application Event Log:

The resolution was simple.  Uninstall .NET 3.0 and reinstall .NET 3.0 (or if you’re reinstalling, you can also go to .NET 3.5 SP1/the latest available version).
