lsass at startup

  Sparky3327 09:32 21 Apr 2005

I think I've got the lsass worm but can't start up correctly to ged rid of the thing.
I just get an error message stating something like "lsass.exe" not recognised.
I've got removal stuff on a disk but can't get in to operate it.
Any ideas?
PS It definitely says lsass and not Isass.

Just check the location of the file. If it's not in "C:\Windows\System32\lsass.exe" then you should be alarmed!

That's fine, but the pc won't let me get into it at all. I've got Stinger ready on a disk but just can't get into Windows. I've tried Safe Mode and booting off the CD. The error message simply comes up and it reboots itself.
So until I can get into the pc, I'm stuffed.

have you changed the BIOS to boot from cd first?

by the way, what operating system?


  Sparky3327 10:12 21 Apr 2005

Yep, changed boot order, using XP Home on a laptop.

"I've got removal stuff on a disk"......the disk needs to be bootable.

Do you have a restore disk or an original xp disk?

If you've explored all avenues try to repair the xp disk or run the restore disk.

that was bad writing, sorry.

try to repair xp from the xp disk. Or run the restore disk, which ever you have. You'll probably lose the data on the computer.

  Sparky3327 10:23 21 Apr 2005

Yep, tried all avenues I can think of. Tried booting with an XP disk to no avail.
Isn't the restore facility on the XP disk anyway?
I've got the 6 disk start up pack (floppies) but I know from experience that most of the HDD will be wiped if I try this.
And I need to keep the HDD intact.

Maybe someone else with come up with a suggestion.

Although me thinks you're gonna end up re-installing.

Best of luck to ya.

Have you tried to boot up into safe mode to run your stinger ?
