Virus I Think

My computer shuts itself down and the only error message I can get is something like lsass.exe, I have run a virus scan, and it says things are clear, but there were quite a few files that it says can not open. But something is definitely wrong because it is slow a cold molasses. It took it about 5 minutes to come up and then when I try to open anything, it takes forever to open. I know it should not be acting this way. Is there anything you can tell me to help. <_< Thanks PB

lsass.exe is a legitimate Windows program, but also a frequent target of viruses. Do you have anti-virus software installed on your computer?

Please run a free online virus scan here:

And a free trojan scan here:

When finished, let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
