I am new to these Forums, so I say Hi to everyone! However I am in need of some help.
Before I start, I am running Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.
I have ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite (Latest) SpyBot S&D, and Ad-Aware SE Professional (All updated with latest Definitions).
When I turn on my Computer, everything loads up fine until my Desktop appears. (After the Welcome Screen).
Sometimes the Icons, Start Menu, Quick Launch etc. do not appear - but appear after Restarting. (This could be a different problem, not relating to the one mentioned on Topic).
However, when everything does load up, including the Icons, Start Menu etc. I receive an Error, labelled LSASS.exe - Application Error with the following text: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). with the only option being: Click on OK to terminate the application.
I have included a picture below to have a better idea.
Once I click on OK, everything loads up fine. I can access the Internet, use my Programs etc.
EDIT: I ran HijackThis and found that LSASS.exe is running:
Although there doesn't appear to be a problem with the performance, it just bugs me that this keeps appearing. I just like things to run smoothly - who doesn't!
Hope this is clear, I will really appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
