Hey everyone,
I know that lsass.exe is not something I want on my computer, however, I cannot stop the process through TaskManager. I know a thing or two about computers, but I'm not an expert, so does anyone have an idea about what to do to get rid of this?

Thanks!
Danny

The file lsass.exe is an essential part of your operating system.
The file lsass.exe is a virus.

WTF?

Actually, it's quite simple - the good file lsass.exe is located in the C:\Windows\system32 directory - and a couple of other directories on your system. On mine it's located in these directories:
C:\Windows\$NTServicePackUninstal$ (in blue - compressed)
C:\Windows\system32
C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386
C:\Windows\system32\dllcache (in blue - compressed)

If it's located elsewhere - get a scan!

When in doubt - get a scan!
