Ok, I'm trying to fix this computer for a friend. It's an HP pavilion 510n. I have reformatted the hard drive, reinstalled windows Xp Home and still get this message. Also, upon booting, it gives me the choice of Window Xp Home edition or Whistler professional. Now, I used my Windows disk but used his password. I've never seen anything like this or the lsass error. All the checking I've found is something concerning the sasser virus. I thought, ok, but I reformatted, and why would it still be there? I went into services and disabled messenger service, ran Avg,spybot,stinger,among others and no sasser is popping up. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. I've tried reading all the FAQs about this on this and other sites, and no help as of yet so I thought I'd post this question. Thanks in advance!
