Our 2003 Server coninually reboots.

Here is the message:
The system process 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exe' terminated unexpectedly with status code -1073740972. The system will now shut down and restart.

It seems like the sasser worm, but I have checked all of that and it comes back as nothing.

What else could be causing this?????

i found this on another site

Hey Tim,

I experienced the same thing and i also monitored lsass over a period of
time and it didn't increase as i would have expected. Nonetheless, the
hotfix for 829993 fixed it (so far).
