Please help me.
I'm using Windows XP. Even after installing a fresh copy of XP after formating, I frequently get error like LSA export version crashed. The system will shutdown in 1 min. And then the timer starts.
I dont understand why it should come even after installing a fresh copy of windows.
Please help.

Make sure that you have installed latest security updates............. Man do a virus check and stay up-2-date

Check if any file like Isasss.exe is running in Win Task Manager. If yes,

Download the Symantec Removal Tool for W32.Sasser from here

better upgrade to service pack 2 after u remove the worm ... or still better do a complete reinstall and patch windows xp with sp2 . u will be free from such annoyances and your pc will be far more secure.

Still cant

Thankyou guys for the support.
I'm still working on it though.
The symantec sasser cleaner didnt show any sasser worm.
I also get a "Generic Host process for win32 services"
and the system starts the shutdown countdown.
I formated c:\ and re-installed 2 times but I think the worm is sitting is D:\ which I cant afford to format.

Any ideas guys?

Still no Luck.

Sorry to bother u guys again.
I get both the error messages. lsass and Generic Host process for win32 services. And then the timer starts.
Does that mean i've both the sasser and MS Blaster virus?
I do not have SP2 installed yet. Will installing SP2 at this stage help?
Come on guys, u r the genius', tell me what to do?

well i cant say how to get rid of that problem but you can do one thing go to run and just type "shutdown -a" to abort the countdown...in this way at least it will not restart.....could be handy till u find a solution for it...

Coming back to life ..
Umm First of all you should install a Firewall so that you dont get infected again ..
Yes installing SP2 will cure you of both the problems .. Go for it..

Thanks for the link Nimda
Man that is not a very good antivirus.......
even if it detects viruses, it will be unable to remove it......
Try Avast, if you want a good free AV
