I trying to get rid of some malware on my machine and am going through the services and found a lsass.exe file in the dllcache folder. It is in blue text (compressed). There is an apparently legit lsass.exe file in the system32 folder. I also found that lsass.exe files are associated with a lot of malware, so does anyone know if it is safe to delete the lsass.exe file in the dllcache folder? Occasionally, my antivirus software blocks a Downloader file from running (associated with the Trojan.W32.Downloader).

I see you have a HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.

You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.
At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

This topic will now be closed, since you have an open log posted.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
