Most of the error messages in the event log are related to the website losing connectivity or exceeding timeouts when trying to stop. The "fatal communications error" is repeated 4-10 times a day almost every day from the 14th until the 23rd although several
days only had 0 or 1 error...
I do know that the process that gets pegged up to 100% is always the w3wp.exe process.

I have not tried using Performance Monitor. I have used some of the performance classes (System.Diagnostics) to check different things. Because I am using a remote server, I haven't had access to the web server performance
monitor. Is there a way of doing this remotely? What would I be looking for?
Also....I just got some feedback from my webhost that the process that is spiking is the
w3wp.exe process, if that helps at all.

First, w3wp.exe is a process associated with application pool in IIS.
Whow, this is a very tough one to pinpoint the exact problem. Here are a few points out of my head of the possible problems:
1. Virus scan software running in the background might cause the problem
2. Memory leak in the ASP.NET or ASP due to bad code or a very long running process...
Here is a Microsoft link with articles related to w3wp.exe that might be of interest to you:
