Hi keres!

Are you still able to log into Windows in normal mode? If you are, then I suggest you download and install SP2. There are multiple problems with lsass.exe that were fixed with SP2.

If you are unable to install SP2 (or you still have this same problem after installing it), then I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

I'd still check out the Malware Forum and let the experts there take a look at it. They are amazing, and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they fix your problem!.

You can try doing another REPAIR INSTALLATION, using the link in my signature as a guide, and see if this one sticks. If that doesn't work then the best you can do is hook up the hard drive to another computer as a slave, backup your important data and then do a complete reinstall of XP, using NTFS, but NOT QUICK NTFS.

It's not that hard to set up a hard drive as a slave on another computer. Check out this SITE which explains how to do it step-by-step.

Not exactly.

You take out the hard drive from your problem computer, change the jumper setting on it from MASTER to SLAVE (Look on the hard drive itself, it usually says how to place the jumper for it to be a Master/Slave). Once that is changed, attach it to the same ribbon cable that your hard drive in the working computer is attached to. There should be one open plug on that ribbon. If there isn't then let me know that. Attach a power plug to the hard drive as well. Turn on your computer and see if the computer recognizes it. During boot up, most computers show text about DETECTING IDE CHANNELS and lists what is there. Even if you don't see it, let the computer boot up and then see if the computer recognizes it. If you are using XP on the working computer, then there will be an icon that appears in the systray next to the clock that says New Hardware Found. Wait until you get the message that your hardware is installed and ready to use before going to my computer and seeing if the drive is listed there.

Then leave the jumper off and it will be set as a Slave.
