Hi Y'all !
I have a Gateway, desktop computer with Windows XP on it. It was givin to me because it has a major problem !
When the computer is turned on and just before the Windows logo pops up, an error shows up that says......
lsass.exe - System error Security Accounts Manager initialization failed because of the following error: The handle is invalid. Error Status: 0xc0000008. Please click OK to shutdown this system and reboot into Safe mode, check the event log for more detailed information.
The computer won't go into Safe mode. It does the same thing when I try to go into safe mode. After doing some research, I haven't come up with any solution. Does anyone have any info on this problem ?
Any and all help is much appreciated !!!
Thank you !

Try running the "chkdsk /r" command from the Recovery Console.

Also worth a look, IMO: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316751.

08 STOP errors are not common...much speculation ranging from the above to Sasser infection. I didn't see any post out of several situations...where anyone resolved this successfully or conclusively.

I have seen this problem a few times,
I usually reinstall windows.

There is a post here

I have found that a lot of the time this kind of error is caused by a faulty hard disk drive. I would find out what manufacturer of hard drive you have and download the relevant disk utility from the manufacturers website and run a full extended test. If it finds any errors I would buy a new drive. I know bad sectors can be repaired but I have found that drives that have errors don't tend to do that well in the long run.

I have also seen this caused by antivirus software 'healing' or deleting a virus.
