Is anyone else having problems with this? My sister's computer is always infested with every virus out there, but this one is new to me. Everytime she boots up, lsass.exe keeps crashing and asking to send an error report. I tried deleting the file but there must be another .exe that keeps respawning the thing.

This is a windows system process. You need this running, it is not a virus, stop deleting or end-tasking it. Find out what is not authenticating & fix THAT.

"Windows Local Security Authority Server Process handles Windows security mechanisms. It verifies the validity of user logons to your computer or server. Technically, the software generates the process that is responsible for authenticating users for the Winlogon service."

That worm is affectionately reffered to as the Sasser worm. LSASS.exe is a system file as the other guy stated. It's not this file that needs to be deleted. Here is a link to Microsoft's site which should direct you to the Sasser worm removal tool as well as the Sasser worm patch.

Afterwards, I HIGHLY recommend going to Windows update and downloading/installing all of the Critical updates.

I tell her that every time she gets a worm but she's a moron and doesn't listen. I already removed Sasser but it solved nothing. I was just curious, but thanks for the info.

Did a Google search and came up with this:

Should answer your question.
