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.

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.

Lsass.exe system error insufficient system resources exist to com


You probably have been hit by a virus that is attacking your Local Security Accounts Windows file and is using all your system resources. You may not be able to perform a system scan to fix this issue do to the lack of system resources. Now if you have another pc with a good and upto date antivirus application you can take the hard drive out of your computer and plug it into that other computer and scan it and remove the infection and while you have it in their go to the command prompt and repair the windows files by typing:
chkdsk E: /r
The E: is the drive letter of your infected drive you will know what this is when you go into my computer.
Also use a spyware program like Adaware that is up to date to scan the drive as well.
This all assumes you want to save the drive, Windows, and all your applications. Now if you don't care about those things then try a system restore to go back to a working point in your computers history.
Otherwise repair mode for windows will work also.

Compaq Presario V2000 - lsasse.exe error


That little app is a major factor in the security of your system. You should boot from the XP CD and attempt to repair your current XP installation to rremedy the problem. It can lead to problems connecting to other computers on occasion, but more frequently it can cause problems accessing files on your hard disk.

Lsass.exe-Unable to locae component


Boot from your WinXP CD and repair your existing installation. That is the component that controls security on your computer. When done with the repair and you can boot into your operating system again, you should do a full virus scan on the computer since there are several viruses that can cause this problem.

Pc does not go beyond Lsass.exe application error


Try getting into safe mode, by taping the f7 or f8 key before it boots. Once in safe mode we can do a restore to the last restore point, and go from there. If you can't get into safe mode, let me know and we will go into the bios, set the machine to boot from the dvd drive and use your xp disk to boot her up, this method id too much to post here, let me know and we will take it up only if needed. Also try this, turn off any user accounts that the computer has installed other than your administrator account, and let me know what happens

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 - http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/lsass.exe.html

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.
