Randomly --- The LSASS.EXE error/worm/whatever issue started occurring. Upon start-up, the error message would pop-up and the computer would reboot in 60 seconds. I am able to stop it by using the command prompt (shutdown.exe -a). That's about as far as I've gotten though.

I was also able to scan it on microsoft.com and it was declared to be free of malicious software (yeah, right).

I have the following symptoms...

- Since this error started occurring, the computer boots in a different manner (i.e. my visual settings don't have that same bubbly 'XP' look as they did before --- it looks like safe mode but isn't (???)). When I'm in this mode, I cannot shut down. I click start and the only option is 'log off' which usually takes 15 minutes to do. When I do boot in safe mode, the same thing occurs if I log in as my account (not the default admin account that is available in safe mode)

- While in safe mode, I was able to run some of my Norton anti-virus/spyware, etc. but it's all out of date I decided to search for lssase.exe and found several occurrences of it. I deleted all but those found in windows\system32\etc.....not that that's probably very effective.

- Also, I'm having user issues...I tried to use system restore and received a message stating that I didn't have the authority and had to contact the administrator (even though my user name is administrator). In safe mode - logged on as administrator - I tried to use system restore and kept getting the "system restore must close" error.

- Lastly, I frequently receive the message that the LSA Shell needs to close, yada, yada, yada. This most frequently occurs when I am in the command prompt trying to stop the 60 second shut down count down.

- At the suggestion of someone from BC, I ran <http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.blaster.worm.removal.tool.html> and it said the worm was not found

Hi iheartmycomputer and Welcome to the Bleeping Computer!

I dont see much from the HijackThis log so lets look a bit deeper!


Download WinPFind:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/files/winpfind.php

Right Click the Zip Folder and Select "Extract All"

Don't use it yet

Reboot into SAFE MODE(Tap F8 when restarting)
Here is a link on how to boot into Safe Mode:
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...src=sec_doc_nam

From the WinPFind folder-> Doubleclick WinPFind.exe and Click "Start Scan"

It will scan the entire System, so please be patient

One you see "Scan Complete"-> a log (WinPFind.txt) will be automatically generated in the WinPFind folder


Run MSCONFIG and enable everything in the startup area. To get to MSCONFIG, click on Start -> Run -> type in MSCONFIG -> click OK!

Under the "General" Tab

Make Sure "Normal Startup-load all device drivers and services" has a green tick by it

Click Apply->Close->Follow the Prompts to Restart

Restart Normal and Download and Save Blacklight to your desktop:

Double-click blbeta.exe then accept the agreement, leave [X]scan through Windows Explorer checked, click > scan then > next

You'll see a list of all items found. There will also be a log on your desktop with the name fsbl.xxxxxxx.log (the xxxxxxx stand for numbers).

Copy and paste this log in your next reply. Don't choose the rename option yet! I want to see the log first, because legitimate items can also be present there, such as "wbemtest.exe"


Post back with a fresh HijackThis log and the results of WinPFind and Blacklight.
