My problem started about a week ago when my machine wouldnt boot. I then used a xp boot disc and went into the recovery console to run chkdsk. chkdsk found and fixed one error. But as soon as I click on the user account (I have only the Administrator account) I run into the login/logoff problem. I read lot of posts that suggested the fix as in here http://nordicgroup.u.../recoveryxp.pdf. But as soon as I type exit and reboot my machine I run into the lsass.exe error (http://www.askdaveta...ot_windows.html). I removed that hard disk and ran a scan on it after connecting it to another machine as a secondary disk. But virus scan found nothing (not sure if I trust the results). Now I am completely stuck I cannot even log into the machine using safe mode or any other options.
Does anyone know if how to resolve this? I dont want to reinstall the OS as I have a bunch of programs installed. I can retrieve the data but was wondering if I can fix this without having to install the OS.
