There's a strong possibility that this is a virus, unfortunately. The LSASS process manages user logins, and as such is a common target for infections on PCs running various versions of Windows.You probably have a virius that wasn't detected by your antivirus. Verifay you installed all Microsoft critical updates. Good luck!

How to fix lsass.exe error


for a simple fix, try this -- if not go to the next step

From your post, I understand that you cannot manage to boot or logon into Windows.
lsass.exe is a favorite target of viruses, and it's likely that a virus has destroyed lsass.exe while trying to infect your machine.
If you can boot into Safe mode (F8 during the boot), restore your system to an earlier system restore point. Then scan your disk using several anti-virus programs.
If you can't boot into Safe mode, try to boot into the Last Known Good Configuration (using F8).

If that also doesn't work, you should --follow these steps

How do you perform a reinstallation of Windows XP, sometimes called a repair installation?
Configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM drive. For more information about how to do this, refer to your computer's documentation or contact your computer manufacturer. Then insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.
When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.
Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.
Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.
In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.
Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.
Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

If you still have the lsass.exe error and your Windows keep restarting or you can't even open Windows anymore, its because the error has a small problem in the lsass.exe file itself. This is not a hard issue to rectify . In fact, it isn't really that hard to fix.

To get this problem fixed, you need to repair the lsass.exe file by getting a PC repair program. This program will scan your computer to detect the error and to repair it. Also, it will allow you to recover files that are missing and it will repair or delete the files that are causing problems to your computer.
This PC Repair Program will work- The PC REPAIRING PROGRAM works by an automated process. First of all you will have to start the scanning process while using this program. Once the scan is done, you will get a list of troubleshooting files.
It will also show the lsass.exe error file. Once you've spotted this file, you simply select the category and you press the repair problem button and it will start to repair the lsass.exe file. Once the repairs are done, you simply restart your PC and it's fixed.
This program will not damage any of your software programs already installed. It even allows you to create a backup file from your hard drive.
This software tool will also help you to detect other problems like viruses, worms, cookies and even pop-ups. This way, your computer will be cleaner and faster then before.

So, to repair the lsass.exe error you will need to get the Registry Easy program so you can start a scan, detect the lsass.exe file it's problem and start repairing it.

lsass.exe is probably located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. Known file sizes on Windows XP are 7k-33k bytes long .space.gif
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 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

I can't run some new installation of software Also when I scan with Node32 it want to remove all exe,htm,html files.

Honestly it sounds like your Node32 has been compromised.
Try HiJackThis from
then post the output to their forums. They might be able to help you greatly.
Starting, uninstall (or attempt to), Node32, anything trying to remove ALL .exe/.html/.bat etc files is obviously trying to hose you system down, even if it's not compromised it's went haywire on you.

LSASS.exe failed to initialize. error 0x0000005 System won't boot. How do I fix it?

This can happen after installing an antivirus. You might need to go into safe mode by hitting I believe F8 key after turning on computer, while you're still in the black screen and then uninstalling antivirus. You can also try the following link on repairing windows

Keyboard\service.exe not found error

This is a virus that infected your computer. There is no "keyboard\service.exe" file in Windows. Your antivirus likely removed it but it's still trying to load up on start up.

Go start->Run and type in "msconfig"
Then go to the startup tab on the window that appears and look for that particular exe file and disable it. You shouldn't get the message anymore.

Also clean your harddisk wint an antivirus program

LSASS "Unable to Load Component" Error

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.

On startup, i get the message: Isass.exe - Access Denied

Information on lsass.exe -

Are you running a firewall (such as zonealarm)? It might be your firewall may be blocking a legit attempt by lsass.exe to run. You may have to add this to your firewall's allowed list. Of course if you are not running a firewall or if your firewall is already set to allow lsass you may have even greater problems.

You may want to post more information to get a better answer on this.

Virus on computer

Mcafee is not always solution provider. Use Node32 or Kesperskey antivirus. But as u say a blue error screen is coming u better need to format your pc. Format it and reinstall new OS. It is good solution because if you wait for something then virus might have affected many of your files. Then it can harm your harddisk. So better you format it and then u will have gud access to internet. Next time you download some good antivirus and run it live during accessing internet.
