You may not have to do a repair install, and this will help k4k for sure. When you boot the computer, press F8 a bunch of times. Some computers will beep a bunch, if it does that, just stop pushing F8. When the menu comes up, choose 'safe mode with command prompt'. The computer will then list all files it's loading, and this is normal. After it boots, log in as administrator. You will only see the black cmd window, but that's all we need. Your ultimate goal is to remove the current user password, and we will achieve this by typing:

net user [username] [new password]

Hit enter. Don't type the '[' and ']'. you can leave the new password section blank to remove the password, but it's better to keep a new one for security reasons. User name is the current user.

This may fix the lsass error, or it may not. But it's much easier than a repair install, and will at least be worth a try.

I hope this helps, and good luck!

Put the MS Windows CD in the drive, restart the computer and make sure it's booting from the CD, then make a repair installation.

How to fix lsass.exe error


hello

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.
1.
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.
2.
Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.
3.
Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.
4.
In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.
5.
Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.
6.
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.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

I have a lsass.exe error message and netbook keeps restarting, it wont boot in safe mode or anything and I have no cd drive either. Please help...


lsass.exe is certainly a virus issue, the actual process isnt really a virus but viruses hijack the process for their own nefarious reasons.
You only have two options really, 1) use a boot disk antivirus (search google for avg boot cd) and then use the restore disks to try and repair the system file (copy the one off the restore disk to replace the corrupt one on your system)
2) Use your restore disks / another installation disk to build a new operating system.

Just remember if you have data on the drive to take it out to get your data off first. Personally I'd take your drive out and put a new drive in, then build a new OS on the new drive, nice clean and fast, then put your data onto it.

Running WinXP (has service pack 3) When I turn on my laptop, I get an "lsass.exe" application error. When I reboot and try to run in safe mode, the same error pops up. Ran a diagnostic test in and received...


Hi, this might help you:

try to use system repair to go back if able to.
or try to deinstall the service pack.

also an option but not a guaranteed solution:
maybe due to long period of use your pc needs a cleanup, so i can advice you a freeware like ccleaner.
go to ccleaner.com, doznload it at 'downloads'from filehippo.com (their official download link), and check it out. could be that it just a bit of a mess that slows every pc down or gives you problems once in a while....

I hope this is useful, and greets.

I need to know the reboot menu on the t1090 thamks


What OS is installed?
A lot of Windows machines will let you into the boot menu by tapping F12 continuously when you restart the unit.
Tapping F8 accomplishes the same thing on some machines.
Check this thread as well, it may assist:

Your description of the problem isn't very specific- ie: Do you get a specific error message when booting the machine?

HP - Compaq 6310P Laptop that Is giving an Isass.exe system error


As you may know, lsass is; Local Security Authentication Server. ANY OF THESE THINGS CAN RESULT IN AN UNUSABLE SYSTEM! So don't try them if you aren't able to re-install your operating system without trashing it (Over top should work), if there's any information not backed up that you can't lose, or aren't prepared for the worst, because that's what usually happens, right? :^D TAKE IT TO SOMEONE IF ANY OF THESE THINGS APPLY TO YOU.

Although you shouldn't have any problems with these simple remedies, I don't want to be responsible if it does!

The trojan you found and removed has corrupted some registry settings.

If you have a known good configuration, you can "go back". OR you can try running a registry cleaner on it.

You can also try going into "Services" and killing it, which should bring up your Welcome screen and reboot. All of your usernames and passwords may be gone though! And you'll have to start over.

GL!

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.

Geforce 6800GT conflict with windows xp pro


Have you run a virus or spyware scan of your machine? Is your virus and spyware up to date? While running @ 640x480 does it exibit any other errors? lsass.exe is a system process of the Microsoft Windows security mechanisms. It specifically deals with local security and login policies. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated. Note: lsass.exe is a process which is registered as a trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system. Note: lsass.exe is registered as a downloader. This process usually comes bundled with a virus or spyware and its main role is to do nothing other than download other viruses/spyware to your computer. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system. DON'T REMOVE THE LSASS.EXE let a virus/ spyware program determine if its good or bad. http://www.filehippo.com you can download virus cleaner (avast is my favorite virus protection) windows defender, spybot S&D, AdAware, HighJack This to clean the machine. Then download and install the latest drivers from here: http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp Driver Installation Hints * "Download Accelerator" utilities should be disabled when downloading any drivers. * Do not run virus protection software in the background while installing the drivers. This prevents the driver from configuring itself properly. * Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu > Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove. Get back to me if none of that works. Good Luck, Tim
