I just recently got a virus I think. I started to get a large quantity of pop ups and could not get rid of them. I exited firefox and everything but they just kept coming up. Eventually my computer restarted and wouldn't reboot to the logon screens. It gets as far as "windows is starting up" and then I get a message that says, " The system is shutting down please save all work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown was intiated by The system process C:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exe terminated status cod 1073741819 and then I get a 60 second countdown. It also wont boot into safe mode either. PLEASE HELP!!!!

I got the computer to boot up and log on once for about 2 minutes and Adware ad-watch live had a pop up that said that it blocked digifast.exe from starting up then my computer just rebooted and had the same problem as above

Are you sure, it's lsass.exe, not isass.exe?

This has to be an infection. Since you can't run any of the malware progs, you should just post in the malware forum, and see how they can help you out.

If you want to recover files, then click on "Backup Files Without Windows" in my sig and follow the steps.
