lsass.exe DNSAPI.dll not found error

Q: lsass.exe DNSAPI.dll not found error

When i turns my computer on i gets the windows loading screen but after that i just gets a black screen with an error showing

lsass.exe - Unable to locate component
The application has failed to start because DNSAPI.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem

I was reading a post I think it was on here not sure that said.


Insert the XPCD Reboot the computer; a screen will appear, that says... Boot from CD.... Press any key to Boot from CD...follow the instruction...it will then progress to a Blue screen and load the basic drivers.

A prompt will appear to press r to enter the Recovery Console...PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS, as another option will come up to allow the option to 'Repair' the installation, and select the partition that needs repairing... please select this option.
Once that's done, it will continue to load; then, it will want to reboot, so just let it!
The computer will then be returned to the previous "Black Screen" saying Press any key to boot from the CD... this time, DON'T...just let it reboot itself and it will then go to the next phase of the 'Repair Installation' where you will need to press F8 to agree to the Licence Agreement.

When I inserted the CD I got 3 options
*To set up Windows XP now press Enter
*To repair a Windows installiation using Recovery Console press R
*To quit setup without installing Windows XP press F3

Not sure if i done right or not but I Enter enter and got the Setup screen appear that said to hit F8 to agree. After hitting F8 i got the option to repair tge selected Windows XP install press R

I gets come up Set up has already attempted to upgrade the following windows install. Setup will try to complete the upgrade again. with options
-retry upgrading
-continue installing a fresh copy of Windows without repairing
-to quit setup

When i retries i gets the yellow bar setup is copying files when it gets 63% I get a message saying Setup cannot copy the file dnsapi.dll
Than as me to retry, skip or quit setup.

Wondering if there's something I did wrong along the way or is there something different I can try to do to fix it

Boot off of the Windows Disc get to the Recovery Console.
You can copy the file from your CD to your System32 file
Here type this command:
Copy /Y C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\DNSAPI.dll C:\Windows\System32\DNSAPI.dll
Overwrite the file if it asks

My laptop froze so I turned it off and I back on manually, and when I restarted it, I would get past the loading part, but never to the login page, and it would go completely black and I got this message:

"This application has failed to start Because DNSAPI.dll was not found, Re-installing the application may restore this."

And eventually the message would disappear and all I'm left with is a blank black screen and the cursor.

I have a Windows XP. Any help with this problem is appreciated.
 

A:DNSAPI.dll file not found error

Hiya williadm.

Put the XP installation CD into the drive and boot from it. Choose `R` on the first options page to enter the Recovery Console and after you`ve gone into partition 1 (C:\WINDOWS), type chkdsk /r at the flashing cursor.

That command will check and rewrite corrupt system files and also recover dodgy hard drive sectors. Once it`s finished (it might take a some time), take the disk out and hopefully you`ll be able to boot to desktop as normal. When you`re up and running again, run a full scan of anti- virus, malware and spyware.

I am running Windows XP Service Pack 2. My computer locked up on me. I finally figured out it was the hard disk, and ran chkdsk. It seemed to have fixed the problem, but my computer does not have any users or passwords. Does anyone know how I can get into my hard disk, copy over some of registry files to replace the ones that are corrupted? The files I want to replace are: SOFTWARE, SAM, DEFAULT, SECURITY, SYSTEM. Or am I missing something bigger here? I have tried to use the unix trick of booting from a unix disk and changing my passwords, but it cannot find the accounts to change the passwords. Thanks. Any help would be appreciated.

This is an interesting one, as "lsass.exe" has been known to be a virus in disguise.

It is also an essential Windows program too.

Having said that, can you please give us some more detailed info regarding this problem; such as,

How long has it been occurring?

When this message comes up what were you doing immediately prior to it happening?

Have you made any recent changes to your hardware/software, say in the last two weeks? and if so, what were the changes?

What Anti-Virus and Spyware Programs do you have on board?

Have you run scans with these programs recently, like in the last 24 hours?

Please post back with this info; then, we can start to help you.

Kind Regards,

Everytime I boot up my pc I get a message about the "dnsapi.dll" not being found as a popup on the desktop. It happened yesterday after my computer froze and I restarted it.

A:Dnsapi.dll not found

If you recently removed malware do this,Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads. To resolve this, download Autoruns search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.Right-click on the entry and choose delete. Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

Hello, I have a friend who has a problem with his laptop. It has no floppy drives, has a DVD RW drive, and plenty of storage space.
Enough background; the problem:
Running XP Home edition SP1 his computer will not boot far enough for one to log on, Any safe mode or other wise. The error message is that lsass.exe System Error: "Object not found." He can click on OK or the X and the system reboots to run through the loop again. I've read that an executable has to be run to enable a service needed... however I can't run that from the command prompt offered on the recovery console of the XP Home cd. (someone else's CD since his version is OEM and there is no cd that he has). So I need to know how to fix this problem (preferrably without reformatting since I've heard that people that have done that run into worse problems).

I tried the repair on my XP disc and it stopped the repair saying it could not find the DNSAPI.dll . So tried it again and no go. I still do not know why in the world this previously smooth operating with barely used harddrive suddenly got this problem

Hi. I posted this a few weeks ago, but you told me to turn to the Malware Removal section.

A few months ago, my computer got infected with a fake lsass.exe virus. Malwarebytes got rid of the virus, but the computer still searches for it on startup. When the desktop loads, the popup says something along the lines of "C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\lsass.exe is not found."

The fake lsass isn't there anymore. What I want is for the error message to stop appearing on startup.
I went into msconfig and disabled the non-existant virus from startup, but the error still appears.

Can someone just help me remove the error message from starting up with the desktop? Thanks.

I was going through my boyfriend's desktop IE addons, removing the viruses. Well. When I got to one of them in the registry, I deleted the entire folder instead of the single key. The registry on the system is now corrupt. When booting the system, the mouse appears on a black background, followed by a pop up box that says "Object not found, Lsass.exe". OK is the only option. Click it, reboot.

"Xp Recovery Council!" I thought. I went through all the steps on the disc, it reloaded all of the windows files. Now when you go to the setup screen that is supposted to install the files and drivers and whatnot, it gives that same error box ontop of the screen. Click OK and it reboots. Leave it there, nothing happens.

I even tried using the command prompt from the XP Pro disc to copy a new instance of the file into the c:\windows\system32 directory. The copy went through, but no change. I'm out of ideas and I really don't want to reformat. Is there anyway I can edit the registry from a C prompt to reinclude this file? Some other quickfix?

---GUI OF OPERATING SYSTEM IS INACCESSABLE.---

**EDIT** Guides for editing the Registry from a command prompt are available here http://www.computerhope.com/reg.htm
I don't know if this is going to work. I saved all instances of lsass.exe keys from this system, copied them to a CD, and I'm going to manually import them.

Hi all, I was uploading an XP image to the RIS server (domain imaging similar to ghost), and lost power. When I turned on the compute again, the OS boots but is haulted and the following dialog appears; isass.exe - System Error Object Name not found.

Google and microsoft only give me that this is the Sasser worm, but this is not the case here. I am not sure if slaveing the HDD and replacing the isass.exe will do anything. I could really recreate the image, and waist many more hours, but would rather not.

If I can get into DOS, I can boot to the second OS after I modify boot.ini, trying to find a boot floppy.
Safe mode does not work.
Last known good config does not work.

I can get into the recovery console, but other than fixboot, I am not sure what to do.
 

A:lsass.exe - Object Name Not Found

"lsass.exe" is the Local Security Authentication Server. It verifies the validity of user logons to your PC/Server. It generates the process responsible for authenticating users for the Winlogon service. This process is performed by using authentication packages such as the default Msgina.dll. If authentication is successful, Lsass generates the user's access token, which is used to launch the initial shell. Other processes that the user initiates inherit this token. Like a virus which as you posted is not the case. There is no DOS in XP. You can use the Recovery Console if you have it installed or have a WinXP CD.

edit: oops, I see you have gotton to the RC. Did you run the fix MBR command?

I am having a problem with a Windows 2000 workstation. While working in the middle of an application, the system went into a disk scan.

After the scan it showed 3 damaged files were found. The system then tried to restart. Upon start up I received the message lsass.exe Entry Point Not Found SAMSRV.DLL SAMRLOOKIUPIESINDOMAIN.

After hitting okay to proceed, the system tells me it is shutting down in 60 seconds. Shows a count down and then shuts off. I am not able to get Windows 2000 to start up at all.

I have looked on Microsoft's web site, and have found some articles dealing with lsass.exe, but nothing with the SAMSRV.DLL. I am not sure if this was caused by a virus, or what the problem is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might try running Stinger from a floppy disk and see if that finds anything.

Alrighty, I need serious help. I am not good with fixing computers (only using them ha-ha)
My mother used to work for a man that fixed them and she quit...or something...and she actually made a computer for me to use. Nice screen, cool tower etc.
It worked fine until some msg popped up. A stop msg making my screen blue. Well I began using the computer a different way...Using it at the last known perfect state.
Then I got a msg saying in full;
" lsass.exe Entry Point Not Found. The Procedure entry point SamIQueryServerPole could not be located in the dynamic link library SAMSRV.dll. "
I am going insane! It has been years since my mother first made the darn thing and knows nothing of how to fix it. The computer guy who "said" he fixed it, DID NOTHING! The same msg pops up continuesly when I start up or restart my computer. Even in safe mode I can do nothing to fix this!! The same msg pops up on a black screen. I have no CD or Disk to place in and repair this computer, I cannot download a thing on my mothers new laptop and I have no "super genius" computer friends. Can anyone on this site help me? Please?!

this error pops up after a VERY lengthy boot and then the screen turns dark and only the cursor is visible. Starting in safe mode gives a list of :multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1) Windows/system32/drivers/various program names...

I can't open any programs or check anything (even in safe mode). As far as i know, SP2 was installed last Septemeber and the Norton Anti-virus was up to date. Suggestions please.

A:lsass.exe unable to locate component because NTDSAPI.dll was not found.

If you can't get to SAFE Mode, your options are limited. I would use the WinXP Installation disk and try to get to the Recovery Console and run:

"chkdsk" with the repair switch set ("/X", I think)
"FIXBOOT" and
"FIXMBR"

Also, you might navigate around a bit in DOS and verify that your files and file structure are intact.

If you can't get to SAFE after doing that, then you might look at BIOS and hardware issues. Have you recently installed any hardware ? Anything new is suspicious. If you can run without it, and you can't get to SAFE after doing the above, I would remove the new hardware (if any) and see what happens.

Please report back after you do all this. This is the kind of problem I like to do, and would enjoy not only the challenge of helping to figure it out, but also finding out if you won the war or not.

Hello everyone,
I recently had a virus on my Windows xp computer (one of those ones that pretends to be an anti-virus program telling you your computer is infected). Before I had the chance to remove it I found I was unable to start up my computer. Instead of the usual user login screen I had a black screen with this message:

"lsass.exe - Application Error". The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on ok to terminate the application

Once I click okay nothing happens, the screen just remains blank. I have tried going into safe mode (F8 key) but it doesn?t seem to work. I hold the button down but the computer just loads up like normal and goes onto the dreaded black screen.

I have done some quick research and found that the problem is either the OS is broken, or a virus is pretending the OS is broken. Either way I have no idea what to do.

Any help is much appreciated. Please note however I am pretty clueless when it comes to computers, thus please try to assume as little prior knowledge as is reasonably possible and include simple step by step instructions if you can. I apologise for my ignorance.

If you need any further information let me know. Note as I have no laptop currently I will have to wait until I am in work to respond.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,
i'm running xp pro, with service pack 2.
my problem is this;

on boot up the sequence stops just before the windows log on, and hangs with just the cursor showing. i tried to boot in safe mode and i get a black screen with sys messages, then it just reboots and gets to before the log on again.
the same happens whatever option i choose.if i choose last known good configuration, i get an error message "lsass.exe - the requested operation was unsuccessful".

i have tried to reinstall windows but the setup cannot find any hard discs.

i have removed the hard drive and checked it via another computer. no virus or anything strange found. on the original pc i had anti virus, firewall etc and kept it in good order with bi weekly checks.

is there anything i can try other than getting the data off the disc and reformatting?
i've read tons of forum stuff about this but no one has the exact same problem.

thanks in advance

Hello,

Here is my problem: I am running Windows XP Professional and left my computer on all night. The next morning, I returned and I see an all black screen with an error box saying "lsass.exe - Unable To Locate Component." In the box it says "This application has failed to start because LSASRV.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." I clicked OK and nothing happened. The black screen was still there and so was my cursor, but I couldn't do anything. So, I restarted my computer and it booted up as normal and went to the Windows loading screen, but then I get the same black screen with the error box everytime. I cannot startup Windows at all and I don't know what to do. I have searched all over the Internet searching for an answer but cannot find anything. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks.

A:LSASS.EXE error

Several people have been able to get it to boot by doing F8 during the boot process and choosing the 'last known good configuration', although that didn't work for me. Normal mode and all of the safe modes merely die with the same LSASS error, and even the XP install > repair didn't work. Try the 'last known good', it's worth a shot!I'm on a bug hunt myself with the same error message. I got a lot farther by moving all of the random-character named stuff out of the %windows%\system32 directory that'd been written in since the machine was infected, emptying the Temporary Internet Files and moving a couple of suspicious files out of the Temp directory. I got it to boot after I'd cleaned all of that up and run the XP install > repair again.Best guess: we both got an infection and AVG (or whatever your antivirus is) deleted SOME of it but not ALL of it. I've seen it happen twice now, where the antivirus left the box in a totally wedged state.Note that it's LSASS.EXE (all lower case) in the error message and absolutely NOT Iass.exe as you're showing... it's easy to get the two confused with a sans-serif font. lsass.exe is part of the 'Local Security Authority' (the login process), but Isass.exe is a virus. I'm gonna guess it's just a common typo.BTW, if you look around, some clueless-but-trying-to-be-helpful people will point you at the Sasser worm page. That's not what you have, in ... Read more

Hi TSF,

Recently I started getting this error - lsass.exe(lower case 'L') - which is resulting in a failiure to log on in normal mode and an automatic reboot with the same problem all over again. it happens just before the windows xp log on screen with ok the only option. There are no numbers involved in the error message.

Any ideas. I'm on school holidays (not administrator), and not able to get a re boot cd..

Another question. When and if I do need a re-image at school later on, when I get my computer back how do I create a re boot cd so I don't have to keep going to IT when I have a problem?

i think when you are pc is booting it is trying to start this file. if you have checked that the file is in system 32 then you should remove the start up. click on start then run type "msconfig" then go to start up and uncheck all of the apart from the antivirus. infact you can uncheck the antivirus as well see what happens. click apply and restart pc. if you get the error again try booting into safe mode. when pc is booting keep pressing f8 or f9 then choose safe mode and login as admin, if the error still is there we need to kill it from the resgitry so reply back see what happens.

I have a machine that is running Windows 2000 SP4. This is a machine that I have reimaged. The image has been used on main machines. The same cd. I can unplug the machine from the net work and I don't get the error. I can log into the machine in safe mode. I have run the Microsoft malwaremove tool, the fxsasser tool, fixblast and down loaded a trial version of norton on the machine and it has found nothing. I have also used a Dell CD and started a fresh install of Windows 2000 and when that is done I then reimage the machine and I get the same problem.

The error reads as follows:

This system is shutting down. Please save all work in progress and log
off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown was initiated by
NT Authority\system.

Message: The system process c:\winnt\system32\lsass.exe temninated
unexpetedly with the status code -1073741819. The system will now
shutdown and restart.

This message comes up as soon as the machine reboots with the network cable plugged in.

Yesterday everything worked just fine. Now when I go to boot up my laptop I get the following error :
lsass.exe - Application error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006)

I click the close button on the popup, then it disappears. Then I have a blank screen and nothing happens. I have the use of my integrated mouse, however absolutely nothing else works. Not even cntr-alt-del. I did some reading on this but I can't find anything that I am able to do. I do not have a Windows XP home installation disc, this piece of crap (e-machines 5410) came with pre-loaded software and no disc. The other option that I came across is to use a boot disc (a set of 6 floppies actually) but my laptop has no floppy drive. Is there anything that I can do to fix this in my current situation? any help is appreciated. If there is no fix, surely I can take it somewhere to recover the data that is still (hopefully) on the drive?

A:lsass.exe error at start up

I'm cluching at straws here. But my first thoughts are.

Do you have XP service pack 2 installed?

Is you firewall turned on? Even the XP internal firewall?

I've seen problems with Lsass.exe before it was the sasser virus.

One further point did you buy the laptop new? If you did the seller has a legal requirement to supply an XP CD. Even if its only a restore disk they must provide one.

A Major supplier in the UK got shafted in court a few years back for not providing them.

Hi All, Sorry, but this will get a bit long-winded.Background: I have an XP box that has been reliable for years, no Virii, etc.. I do my updates and scans religiously. However, I am building myself a new workstation, and have had to do a shuffle of MB/Proc/RAM/HDD/PowerSupply Etc.. from one case to another, so I can build the new PC in My 'good case', and have my existing PC running in a spare case until I work the bugs out of the new Win7 box. Problems arose when I tried to boot the existing PC in it's new home... PC would not boot with any peripherals attached. Eventually I swapped the Power Supply out for a good spare, and I am now able to boot with the Drives/fans/soundcard etc attached.Now that it boots, I am getting several errors. The first pops up at the welcome screen, or as soon as I get to desktop if I was fast with the password:lsass - Application ErrorThe instruction at "0x76d62e00" referenced memory at "0x00000100". The memory could not be "written".I have been Googling this, but all I find is software/malware problems. I did remove one peripheral (a video capture device), and may have the sound, and ethernet cards in different slots than they were in the last time it booted in it's old home...Not sure if the instruction and memory references change from boot to boot, but I'll report back. Edit: I rebooted again and got same references.

A:lsass - Application Error

I was wrong above (lost track of the 2am troubleshooting...), I never was able to put the soundcard back in, because whenever it is in, the machine BSODs a short time into booting.

Could the lack of a sound card cause a problem with like this??, or maybe the Creative Labs Soundblaster software?

okay I have no idea what i did to cause this frustrating issue...but it's happened and now I cannot get passed it. I was trying tune up an older system for a friend that was running extremely slow.

Operating System: Windows XP Service Pack 3

The system has many many programs and personal data on it and was running dog slow like I mentioned. So first thing I do is go into msconfig and remove all third party services and all startup items, then reboot. It reboots fine and is still running pretty slow...so I thought I would add a little memory to boost it a bit. It had 512MB PC133 using shared memory for video. So with only one slot available I added a 256MB PC133 module and tried to boot. Everything seemed to post fine...all the memory tested okay, but when it gets to Windows this error box comes up and in the title bar says "lsass.exe - system error" and in the dialogue box says "an invalid parameter was passed to a service or function" and I cannot seem to get around it in any way. If anyone knows the file that is causing the lsass.exe to not load or has any ideas of what I might try short of a format and re-install I would greatly appreciated it. I seem to always find good solutions at this forum...so this is why I come here with the evil ones. M$ is going to make me go bald...how annoying.

A:lsass.exe system error

lsass is a windows login security protocol I think. I don't know why an added stick of ram would set it off but you can try to boot without added ram and see if you get same error. Your ram really should be paired anyhow meaning 2 512 sticks. if you still get error try to boot into safe mode and enable some of those startup items in msconfig

I have a laptop that won't start up properly. When starting it comes up with the following error message.....

I've tried a Windows repair using the original SP1 disc but that hasn't fixed it. The error message also comes up when starting in Safe Mode. I've tried Last Known Good Configuration but that doesn't work either.

When I click OK on the error message it just restarts and loops straight back to the error message again.

Is there anything else I can do before trying a full reinstallation?

If you have a fast internet connection (broadband), run an online virus scan at TrendMicro http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/ente...all_launch.php. Just follow the instructions on the site to run the online scan. If any viruses/trojans are detected, try to delete or clean them in that site. You may use Panda ActiveScan also at http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan. Otherwise, make sure your antivirus program has the latest definitions and run a full system scan.

Many times, the on-line scans will pick up something that the resident scanners do not, because of masking.

Let us know if the scan(s) find anything.

Hi again,

This is ridiculous, last time I spoke to you guys about Jan time I had this error and the only way to overcome it was to reinstall Windows from scratch. Now only a few months later the error has returned. Is anyone able to explain what the issue with it is. I hear from some posts that it is to do with microsoft secure login or something and that it is simply a legitimate failure, but in some other posts I read that it was a backdoor trojan or something like this and that people may be hacking my computer to gain financial information etc. I immediately disconnected my wireless card (if this was really the case), so presumeably they can't access my passwords and stuff anymore?

I am wondering if it is just a terminal like failure of my laptop. I have had it for 5 years now and it really seems to be on its final legs. The fan runs on overdrive at all times, it heats up really quick to the point where the wireless card seems to malfunction due to heat and the internet is pretty slow considering we have a fast connection and it works better on my flatmates laptops. Am thinking perhaps of just getting a new laptop, but what about the hacking issue? Do I need a new laptop, or is it just a coincidence that I have now had this same error in the past 5 months etc?

Hi guys and gals,

An update on a previous system error I was having - and thanks for those who replied - whilst waiting for my new hd to arrive I was still trying to get into my old hd and was randomly pressing the F keys - I pressed F10 and the system did a 'restore of factory settings' but it said that all of my data would be stored in 'My old disk structure' directory as another partition would be created - Wonderful I thought!!!

So I happily let it do this restore thingy and it all seemed fine - but then when I went to boot it up it loads XP and goes into a desktop look but a window pops up that says 'Lssas.exe system error password' and something about the parameter being wrong. Then the PC just reboots itself!

I can't load safe mode, I can't stop this window from popping up, I can't stop the reboot!

I've looked up on the lssass.exe error and it seems it might have been from a virus that my anti virus cleaned but has left this error - various options seem to remove the thing from the registry - which is all fine and dandy but my PC just reboots itself - can anyone suggest anything????

Thanks in advance

hello....i need help...again...

I've got a system running quite smoothly on xp sp1a, until recently...

here are the symptoms:

on boot up, after the windows xp splash screen, i get an error window saying:

"lsass.exe system error: the endpoint format is invalid" with only an ok button.
when you click ok, the pc just reboots again...this also happens in safe mode, and i can't also run in command prompt only.

so, i read around some forums and found that this may be caused by a sasser worm...i downloaded the symantec removal tool, but i cant execute it from the recovery console (cd boot-up)...

so i just went on to do an installation repair using my cd but the installation did not finish, with an error in one of the DLLs...

I then rebooted and waited until the system displayed "setup being restarted..."

after this, however, the system displays a BSOD with only an binary address as the technical information for the stop, no dll error or anything...

have any of you guys encountered this? any idea on how i can solve this would be much appreciated...

These errors are hard to troubleshoot without the system.

Chances are...it's either malware...a registry problem...or file corruption...but it could be something totally off the radar screen.

Toshiba doesn't provide as much support info as some other manufacturers...so it looks like the Toshiba option is to restore-to-factory-defaults whenever anything goes wrong.

Since it's not a primary system...I would just do the restore to factory defaults and move on...to see if it still has problems.

This message came up this morning:lsass.exe-Application ErrorThe application failed to initialize properly(0xc0000005). Click on ok to terminate the application.I will click ok and just get a blank black screen.I know this has been covered, but i searched and didn't get any results. Its definately Lsass.exe not isass.exe etc.It comes up when the computer is booted, after the microsoft windows page but before the desktop loads. I can't get into safe mode the excact same thing happens.I can't get into it to scan or do anything, and to top it all off the cd drive was un installed so its not usable.The computer has a seagate HDD, Microsoft windows home with SP3.What can I do?Also, is there any chance that this is a virus. I am aware that i could potentially use my external HDD to boot the computer. I just can't afford to let that get a virus.EDIT: Moved from XP to more appropriate Am I Infected forum ~ Hamluis.

A:lsass.exe-Application Error

Hi brody 94 -
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 (mostly XP SP2 and 3) -
Sasser virus is one of the most common infections that cause this problem - I can help no further, but it is a common problem after XP SP2 -
Thank You -

A:lsass.exe logon error

That doesn't give us much to work with. You need to be more specific. Are you unable to login?

If you are unable to logon, try restarting the computer, and keep tapping F8 just like you would to get into Safe Mode, except at the Boot Menu, choose the option that says "Last Known Good Configuration".

hey guys, all of a sudden I am getting this error. not sure how I trouble shoot as my laptop does not even start up at all. the initial windows screen loads, then all of a sudden the screen goes black and I receive this error. if i click on either the little x in the top right hand corner of the box or the ok button, it restarts, if i click nothing it just sits there and does nothing indefinitely. should i perhaps boot in safe mode in order to get to the desktop and then try troubleshooting from there. thank you for any assistance you may be able to give whatsoever. nick.
