lsass.exe -> My Admin password not recognized by Recovery Console

I recieve this message when Windows XP boots up:

LSASS.exe application error. The application failed to initialize properly [0xc0000006]. Click OK to terminate.

I click OK, but it just sits at a black screen. I have read the suggested fixes, including one by Microsoft. I try to go into the Recovery Console, but when I type in my Administrator password, it says it's the wrong one ... I am pretty sure it's the right one though as I just set it last week.

Any clues as to what else I can do? Do I need to reinstall Windows XP?

Thanks,
KG

Hi PeteL,
I am trying what you suggested (booted off a W2K CD, started the recovery console), but I cannot run regedit.exe ... I am in C:\Windows and can see the executable, but I cannot run it! It's been a while since I have been at the command prompt, but there's no magic here ... any suggestions?

Thanks,
Kaveh
as far as Im aware regedit is a win32 application and cannot be ran from recovery console?
