I then received an error message stating "system32 lsass.exe terminated unexpectedly" and that it was shutting it down in 60 seconds. It would not allow me to do anything else. It restarted my computer and the same error message popped up after I logged back into my User Account, before I had pulled anything up. The third time, I managed to pull up the Task Manager, and the only thing running was something titled "Project1". I tried starting my computer in Safe Mode and it would not allow me to, it just brought me back to the boot screen. I put in my XP disc and attempted to do a Repair Install, but it did not give me the option. With the help of a friend, I found the "shutdown -a" command which managed to stop the auto-restarts; I also did "End Task" for the Project1 application.
I tried to install Windows Updates; it would not let me. Internet Explorer refuses to sync with my DSL, which is probably not related; I have not used IE since we had the DSL put in. I even downloaded the latest version of IE8, and it will not work. Today, all of my windows started..flickering, like the cursor was jumping between them, and I had to keep clicking back on the tab I was using. When I pulled up Task Manager, "Iexplore.exe" was in the processes. I was only running Firefox. It would not stop and I had to manually restart the computer.
I have tried to download the free AVG program; it would not install. When I try to shutdown my computer from my User Account (which is an Administrator Account) I have no Shutdown/Hibernate/Restart Options; I can only log off or switch user. It is also getting hung up on saving my settings, and I have to manually restart the computer with the restart button on the tower.
