Hi all.I have just run my virus scan and it has come up with Isass.exe in my win32 folder and is saying that it is a virus.I have been onto the windows site and run the Malicious virus scan and it said my computer is clean.I then run the sasser worm removal tool and that has found nothing.I have already downloaded the windows fix for this.Why am I getting this and why is it in my task manager when I open it,Has every one got this file?Please can some one help

Not sure if you've made a typo -

isass click here
lsass click here

The one on my system is Isass.exe not isass.exe.Will this make a diff- I have been told that Isass is not a virus but why does my virus scan pick it up?

Isass.exe is a legitimate windows file. isass.exe is a virus.Try a independant scan

The confusion seems to arise partly because there are two files with very slightly different names.

isass click here

and lsass click here

The first is an I (between H and J)

the second an l (between k and m)

In some windows fonts a capital I looks the same as lower case l. A ploy by the virsu writer to confuse the PC owner...

In the standard XP font a capital I (h...J) is the same as a lover case l (k...m) click here

i have experienced the virus isass.exe, it was a type of WORM (bropia) that is circulating on Msn Messenger. Have you got any of these copies of the virus on your c:drive??

Hopefully you will not find any of these on your system, I had to have my pc wiped in order to regain use of it!!I am not clever enough to attempt it myself so I am more cautious than I was before.
