Please help! I own a Samsung nc10 and had avg free installed on it, today I went to the apple website to look at ipod nanos, then the argos website, then straight away received a warning from avg of a virus and it prompted me to restart.

When restarting upcame:

"lsass.exe - Unable to run Component
The application has failed to start because msls51.dll was not found
Re-installing the application may fix this problem"

I only have the background appearing once windows starts and that's it. I can get task manager up, there were no applications running, but 28 processes. so I tried to restart in safe mode, and once it did the same message came up. I don't have a disk drive on this laptop so can't reboot to disk. I'm thinking of trying to get the installation files of malware remover software onto a usb key and trying to see if I can remove the virus that way, but I'm obviously missing components so wanted to ask someone's advice first.

Has anyone heard of this before?

Any help is greatly appreciated
