Isass.Exe - laptop problem

  Steinmanstorm 12:56 16 Aug 2005

Bit of a global one this!
My mate who is on holiday in Australia has texted me about his laptop -running xp - problem.
Keeps getting the message "This application failed to initialise Isass.Exe"
He also said that the pc gets past windows xp start up screen then just dies as though switched off.
Can't do safe windows & has tried F8 + options.

He also asks if can a xp re-install be done partially, so not to delete files/photos he has on laptop (all Jpegs).

Can anyone help at all?

lsass.exe is a system process of the Microsoft Windows security mechanisms. It specifically deals with local security and login policies.

lsass.exe also relates to the Windang.worm, irc.ratsou.b, Webus.B, MyDoom.L, Randex.AR, Nimos.worm which spread via floppy disk drives, mass-mailing and peer-to-peer sharing.

Try to get in to safe mode and run an anti virus and spywear app.
