Basically, I've got some sort of virus/worm on my PC and when I start up my computer I can't see my start bar at the bottom or any of my desktop icons (such as IE or Word). I'm lucky as my MSN signs in automatically and Im able to access the internet by checking my emails through MSN but am unable to do anything to fix the probelm as Im restricted to what I can do.
Originally it came up with a repeated message about not being able to find a "Lsass.exe" and upon typing it into google, its a worm that is quite deadly *gulp*
Lsass.exe is not necessarily a virus, it is also the name of a process that is in windows.
Here is a quote about it:
"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
Note: The lsass.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. In other cases, lsass.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm!
