Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
My computer went out when there was a power circuit overload that tripped the breaker. After that windows gave an error "LSASS - Unable to Load Component ?????" error. I should have ran the System File Checker as everyone in Google recommends, but where I was I didn't have an internet connection to look it up. I started the Windows XP in-place reinstall instead, but now when Windows Setup loads it gives the same LSASS error except it doesn't mention any file, it merely says "lsass.exe: unable to load component" at the top of the error window, and the dialog says, sic: "the application has failed to start because." No matter what I do, it will keep popping up.
I think because of the power failure, some parts in your hard drive are broken, bad sector may be.
So, when reinstalling, I suggest you to do full format, not a quick format. That way, the installation will recognize the place where bad sector is located, and will not put anything at that place.
Can not load component, usually because windows can not read from the disk.

lsass.exe is probably located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. Known file sizes on Windows XP are 7k-33k bytes long .
It is a Windows core system file. The program is not visible. File lsass.exe is a trustworthy file from Microsoft. Program listens for or sends data on open ports to LAN or Internet. Therefore the technical security rating is 9% dangerous.
lsass.exe is harmless and if u kill it, it's likely to reboot or revert to welcome screen. two famous viruses are lsass.exe begining with an "I" or ending in triple "s"
lsass is a legitimate Windows object for user authentication but it is vulnerable to the sasser virus and can be HiJacked. Someone please clean up this place as at least half of the entries are worthless. it may be a trojan (form of virus) named SASSER
please rate me with 4 thimbs up
