Re: turn off problem

If you have (L)lsass.exe, that is a windows executable file, if you have Isass orisass.exe, then you have a trojan, run your antispyware and antivirus programme using safe mode (press F8 on boot up) to enter safe mode. Also you must turn off system restore before you run the virus removal, then turn it back on again.

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.

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 "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.

Turn off problem

if your familiar with the regedit(registry editor) it can find the files for you and you can delete them. but before you do any of that turn off system restore (if your computer has it) after that do a disk clean to remove all restore points then restart and then scan if it's still there (and it should not be)

then use your removal tool(any antivirus becoz this file is a virus), REMEMBER THIS, DO NOT HAVE SYSTEM RESTORE ON when you are using the removal tool. the reason I say turn off the restore is because virusus write themselves in there so when you reboot it reinstalls itself. good luck.
