XP lsass.exe - failure booting

Hello again Smile

My laptop suddenly switched to a black screen saying "operating system cannot be loaded". But Windows has already been running several hours when this error occured.

After rebooting the system it loaded up to the windows xp screen and stopped booting there with the error report "Error in lsass.exe - Cannot initialise application." No chance to log-in even not when booting in secure mode - same error there.

I virusscanned from bootable knoppicilin without any results and Windows XP CD doesn't seem to have "repair console". I am quite hopeless right now.

Any idea how to get my system back working again?
yeah mate 1st find someone with net and they can download a repair cd off microsoft or boot from xp cd and select install then repair ? hope this helps
After exhaustingly searching the web for help without success, I decided to reinstall Windows. Perhaps the error was caused by some kind of worm (relative to sasser) but I'll never know Wink

Thx anyway!
Hi i found this info on a web site about the lsass.exe file:

lsass.exe is a system process of the Microsoft Windows security mechanisms. It specifically deals with local security and login policies. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

Note: lsass.exe is a process which is registered as a trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.

Note: lsass.exe is registered as a downloader. This process usually comes bundled with a virus or spyware and its main role is to do nothing other than download other viruses/spyware to your computer. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.
