    Default Lsass.exe error

    Hello I was working on a dell lattitude D620 with windows xp professional installed. Originally it would not boot to windows because of a missing or corrupt system32 config file. Following the advice on here I got it to boot to windows.

    Now I am getting a Lsass.exe error that says "when trying to update a password, the return status indicates that the value as the current password is not correct" Then the system reboots.

    Any ideas on the solution?

    Thanks
    KC

    Check the spelling carefully

    The lsass.exe file is located in the c:\windows\System32 folder.

    In other cases, isass.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm!

    One is a necessary part of Windows located in
    c:\windows\System32 folder lsass (small letter l) = good MS file

    =======================
    Then there is a cleverly disguised virus

    (isass.exe) is a virus/Trojan (small i) =Trojan virus

    Note:
    Windows users may easily mistake it for the very important security process, lsass.exe (starts with a lowercase L, as in lucky).

    And yes isass.exe is a browser hijack program that will keep taking charge of your browser home page.
