Hi all!

I'm afraid a have malware in my startup-folder, called "lsass.exe".

When i searched my hole computer for "lsass.exe" he found those in "system32\lsass.exe", in "system32\dllcache\lsass.exe" and in "D:\files and local settings\Heinrich\startmenu\programms\startup\lsass.exe"

When uploading my Hijackthis-log to hijackthis.de (automatic logfile-evaluation), lsass.exe was the only process rated harmfull.
To be exact: "O4 - Startup: lsass.exe"

Links with information for that process are (according to my research):
http://www.techspot.com/startup/3843/
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/LSASS.exe-9885.html
http://www.hijackthis.de/rating.php?hjtein...iBsc2Fzcy5leGU=

Unfortunateley, none of those sites said how to remove it. Also, there are listed so many diffrent names for this malware, which results in confusion for me :thumbsup: ^^

I deactivated lsass.exe from my autostart in msconfig, rebooted in safety-mode and didn't find lsass.exe in the startup-folder anymore, also it was deactivated in msconfig\autostarts [as expected].

I also uploaded the other 2 lsass.exe-files, but "ThreadExpert" (File-Checking-Website) didn't find them to be dangerous.

Please help me, what shall i do?

Thanks very much in advance,

Heinrich


PS:
I don't think it matters, but this is what my AntiVir PE delivered:
HTML/infected.webpage.gen [when shutting down or something yesterday]
TR/ATRAPS.Gen [when doing a hole system scan today]
