Monday I came home and was getting a win32/system corrupt at boot up. I did some research and found a way to fix it on internet so i followed the instructions. Then I restarted and it booted up but as soon as it was booting up it came up with this"lsass.exe error- When trying to update a password this return status indicates that the value provided as the current password is not correct." I made a boot disk to reset the password and they were already blank in the system. Then i found a post about someone fixing it wit ubcd boot disk so I downloaded and built one of those. I boots up but I dont know what to do next to fix the lsass.exe problem. Is anyone familiar with this problem? I have been at this since monday to fix it.

The error message and your computer's behaviour are classic symptoms of it having been infected by the "sasser" virus. Please post here: http://www.geekstogo...o-Here-f37.html,
Explain the symptoms and that you've been advised it's probably caused by the 'sasser' virus. Whilst I know you have the symptoms I'm unable to help you remove it. One of the experts on the malware forum will be more knowledgeable about that aspect of it.
