Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Recently whenever i turn off my computer i see a popup showing lsass.exe on the top and requesting END NOW . this atotaly new problem to me . Help me out when my computer is turned-on the C:WINDOWSSystemIsass.exe appears, what should i do to fix these 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.

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
