A user I've been working with has been recieving a blue screen with the error message "lsass.exe - Application Error The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006). Click OK to terminate the application" whenever she boots up her computer. I know that lsass.exe verifies the validity of user logons to the computer. From what I've been able to find online, this is either a side effect of Sassar or she needs to run a repair install. Does anyone have any experience with this issue who can tell me a bit more than the vague suggestions I found on Google? Thanks.

Sounds like an infection case and i doubt the version is legit. If it is a legit version after doing my best to clean the infection I would give it a go with a repair installation.

I would try the W32.Sasser Removal Tool, from Symantec, before doing a repair install.

Search for the file "lsass" - the legitimate one will be in the C:\Windows\System32 folder. If it's somewhere else, like the root directory of the drive or the C:\Windows folder or a program folder, it's bad. If you find the file, right-click on it and choose "properties." You should be able to quickly determine, by running down the items on the left in the properties box, that it is indeed from Microsoft Corporation. Also, check for Isass - that's the same thing but with a capital i. Those malware writers are clever buggers. The correct filename should start with a small "L" because it's an acronym for: "Local Security Authority Service."

I'm having the same type of issue where my XP machine while booting receives a message box titled "lsass.exe - Application Error" with the message "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application." This occurs twice and then just sits on an empty screen. It never reaches the login screen. I have tried booting to safe mode and the last good configuration and they both experience the same thing.

Since I can't get the machine to boot, I pulled the drive and put it in another computer as a slave. I've run scans and such but when I put it back in and try to boot, I get the same thing.

From what I've read is that the bogus lsass.exe is being executed from a bogus random name so the searches for it come up empty.

I'm at wits' end and any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Lets add one more to the "I'm having the same problem" list. I was going to try a fresh install using my windows disk but Windows Setup gives me the message "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in you computer." I don't understand how I could even get to the message screen about the lsass.exe error if the HD had crapped out. Any ideas?
