I was looking through my processes, and noticed the process called Isass.exe I logged onto the processlibrary.com for information it said that it was part of the optix pro virus and should be removed,however if I try to stop the process the message comes up saying it is a critical process and could cause problems if stopped I do not Know what I should do it is not picked up by any of anti virus or spyware programs.
any Ideas as to wheather it is safe to stop.

you don't mean Lsass.exe as in L for lemon?

If you do then that service is critical to windows - Local Security Authentication Server. If you remember the sasser virus? This was the process it exploited...
