"Could not load file or assembly Microsoft.SharePoint.intl" error
From time to time I am seeing an error pop up that causes SharePoint to crash. It seems to happen when the app pool cycles or the server starts up. I can correct it by cycling the app pool. The problem I have is that the message doesn't seem to be true when I use Process Monitor to scan for access denied events in the file system, or likewise use the assembly binding log viewer to look for failures in bindings. Given that the workaround is to cycle the app pool it doesn't feel like a true access denied error. Has anyone else seen this?

I happened to have the same problem for the past weeks and I've solved the problem.For my situation, whenever the application pool for the SharePoint site gets recycled, normal SharePoint users who attempted to access the site will get the error message which Colin had posted. However, if users who are in Administrator or Power Users groups access the site again, everything is running fine. After days of testing, I found out it is actually the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) folder not given any access rights to the normal users. Hence I give Users group "Read" access rights to the GAC folder and now normal SharePoint users are able to access the site after the application pool is recycled.Below is the link that allows you to assign rights to the GAC folder via command prompt (You cannot change the GAC folder access rights from Windows Explorer). Just change the parameter values accordingly.http://community.integratedsolutions.dk/blogs/visual_studio_2005/archive/2006/05/17/308.aspxKeep us updated on your findings... Thanks!

Even I was getting this issue today morning. It was resolved when I added read only permission for everyone on the virtual directory of the application. Still need to check how it was changed but it resolved this issue. Please ensure that the mentioned dll is either in bin or GAC and the web.config has same assembly information.
