"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.
Its just a normal OS file. If you have problems with your computer shutting you down saying there was an error with it...Then you should look into the sasser virus. Once you update to the windows xp service packet 2 you will have the lsass.exe file in two if not 3 folders. All three in windows one in the service packet folder one in the system32 folder and one on some computers is in a folder called SoftwareDistribution. If the file is in any or all of these directories it is fine.
