Hi there everyone, Haven't been in here for awhile been away back packing.

Well back into it. I have a laptop here and not much time to get it back to the client and I'm going to sleep on this so while I was a sleep your time frame might work for me :thumbsup:

I have spent ages on this today via google , reading forums etc "its a virus, no it not" and all these fix's that are not working.

lsass.exe System error
object name not found


Spec's

Compaq Presario 2500
xp home ( sorry cant boot for more info )

When loading windows it comes up with the above error click ok it reboots, same for safemode and also system repair. Tried ERD Commander but no windows to restore. Have used HD in a caddey on another pc and ran malewarebytes, spybot (some forums say spybot will fix it) etc chkdsk /r. All of the clients files are there.

I believe there is Lsass.exe and lsass.exe and the lower case being the worst.


Could some one shed some light on this for me while I'll snuggle in for the night


Thanks in advance

Are they both in this directory?
C:\WINDOWS\system32\
I seem to recall the upper case being the baddy, but I could be wrong

Good thinking I will check that

Ok checked that and it is however it's meant to be there and dated 2004. If there were any others as Lsass.exe etc thats a virus. I replaced ram didnt do anything so what I'm doing now is cloning the HD on to a new one and see if that works really doubt it.

Upper case good, lower case bad
I think this might take care of the sasser virus which I believe this is:
