Error message.

I've just upgraded my Operating system from Windows 98 to Windows 2000. I keep getting the message "The system process c:\windows\system32\isass.exe" then "status code 128" and then shuts down. Also can't use outlook. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

I believe it is a trojan. Press start>searh> files and folders type in Isass.exe then once found delete then reboot. I hope this is right.

Virus and spyware writers are getting more cunning. They are now disguising their viruses to look or sound like Windows system files.
Isass.exe lsass.exe The first starts with the letter capital i (I) and second starts with the letter lowercase l (L). The one starting with i (isass.exe) is a virus/Trojan but Windows users may easily mistake it for the very important security process, lsass.exe (starts with a lowercase L, as in lucky).

I searched for Isass.exe but I didn't find it. I even did a search in System32 as well as the whole hard disk and still no joy. Bitdefender didn't list this in removal tool either.

Click START>RUN and type shutdown -a (press enter) to stop your system from restarting if you need to.

I did a google search after my last post and found a soloution simular to what Dan the Confused has suggested, this seems to have worked. Thanks
