I have win xp installed. I have just reinstalled for the 7th time.
When I turn off the pc I get l.sass.exe-system error. Security accounts manager initilization failed because of the following error. The handle is invalid. error status: 0x0000008. then it says check event log.
Okay first I had a virus called Hidrag.A, I had to reformat to get rid of it. virus gone, no sasser virus, ran the sasser tool. Updated my virus scanner. Reinstalled still getting same error. I'm thinking okay this file is corrupt. PURCHASED new winxp today, still getting same error message after format and fresh install. No 80 gig maxtor. Could this be a hard drive conflict. Put in new Nvidia GeForce 4mx 4000, as video keeps going with the error and it has not helped at all. I do not have Roxio cd drivers which apparently cause lots of problems. I have an lg cdrw. system is fine if I just restart. If I shut down it takes 5 boots to restart. Service pack 2 is installed. I think this has got to be a hard drive problem, what do you think???? by the way I also use Ad-aware.
