I would like all of yourz expertise in solving this severe problem.
My computer, it seems got infected and it is damn slow. It shows the CPU usage upto 100%, hence restricts other applications to get processed or atleast it delays to few minutes. Please let me know if there are any "FREE" anti-virus softwares available which can scan & clean this virus.

Could u please let me know the solution for the below error which is forcing to shut down the PC.
 "lsass.exe exits with error code 120"
