I have a Dell Optiplex pc with Windows 2000 professional installed. Each time I log onto the pc I'm getting the following program error:

"LSASS.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created."

Then a second pop up appears:

"The system process C:\WINNT\system32\lsass.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code 1073741819. The system will now shut down and restart."

Is anyone able to advise what I need to do to stop this happening each time?

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions

"lsass - lsass.exe - Process Information
Process File: lsass or lsass.exe
Process Name: Local Security Authority Service
Description: The Windows Local Security Authority Server Process Handles Windows Security Mechanisms
Common Errors: N/A
System Process: Yes" taken from http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintas...slibrary/lsass/ (http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/lsass/)

or this one:


The system process 'C:\WINNT\System32\Lsass.exe' terminated unexpectedly with status code 128. The system will now shut down and restart.

The above error will occur if the following events transpired:

1. You installed the 271976 Hotfix Rollup Package and DID NOT RESTART.

2. You installed the 274172 FIX: Adding Multiple Users to Active Directory Can Cause Memory Leak When Setting Passwords and restarted your computer.

3. You installed the Windows 2000 High Encryption Pack and restarted your computer.

In the above scenario, a mismatched version of Advapi32.dll remains on your disk.

To resolve this issue:

1. Boot the Windows 2000 Recovery Console.

2. Switch to the System32 folder, cd system32.

3. Type ren advapi32.dll advapi32.old and press Enter.

4. Type copy c:\winnt\$ntuninstallq274172$\advapi32.dll and press Enter, where C:\Winnt should be replaced with the drive and folder in which Windows 2000 is installed.

5. Type exit and press Enter.

NOTE: See QChain.exe is a safe way of installing multiple hotfixes with a single reboot."

Me myself haven't got a clue what's it about but I hope you have.
You can also try to type the errorcode or lsass.exe in google. Lots of hits.
Good luck.
