lsass.exe issue

hi all, I have this 'well known' issue : at a certain point the server shut down with the message

'the system process c\windows\system32\lsass.exe terminated unexpectedy with status code 128'

I tried quite a lot of tools as for example: Stinger by McAfee, Symantec tools, Adaware, I passed the Norton Antivirus 2005 server edition ... any of these tools detect a virus

Before reinstalling the machine I ask you if maybe somebody has some other idea to give me to solve that issue.

Tnx n regards

You only need to do this if the server is continuely rebooting....this will stop it from rebooting for 999 minutes.
if your system is continuely rebooting, do this to buy some time:

This will help you out a lot

go to start, run, type shutdown -i

Go to "Display warning for -------- Seconds"

Set it to 999999

Go to "Option"
Scroll down to "Operating System: Reconfiguration [Planned]

Add the computer and click ok.

Now you will have 999999 seconds until it will reboot which will give you enough time to do what you need to do
Upgrade your system to the Windows 2003 SP1 and then run virus cleanup software.,..
Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.
