my buddy's pc has a dsl connection, and everytime he logs on to his pc it is automatically rebooted because of an error with lsass.exe. I realize this may be the sasser worm, but he just installed xp pro on his pc, i don't really think he has had enough time to get this. maybe so. anyways, is there any other reasons this could be happening besides this worm.??

The average unprotected XP computer, connected to broadband, and without patches applied, will become infected in less than 20 minutes!.

He's got Sasser. <_<
