For some reason while i browse the internet lsass.exe increases in memory usage little by little until after a couple hours it will reach up to 300,000k+. After a reboot it goes back to 4,000 until i start chrome or internet explorer again. It only increases when browsing the web, not when playing online games or anything else.

Any help in fixing this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Cliver,
It sounds like you have a corrupt Isass.exe depending on where this is installed in the kernel will tell. Go to the Virus Removal Form and have them run a scan
