Lsass.exe error windows 2003 SBS
Posted on 2006-07-05
After an M$ windows update, my Win 2003 SBS server will no longer allow us to login. Same in safe-mode and safe-mode with networking. Ctrl-Alt-Del get no response. In normal mode, after a few seconds of pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del, the system shows error "The system process lsass.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code -1073741819. The system will now shut down and restart" Then it counts down 60 seconds and restarts.
System is a 1.8Ghz AMD CPU with 2GB of RAM. It has been running fine for months until the windows Update.
The only way to login succesfully is through "Directory Service Restore Mode". I tried further updates and scans for Virus and Spyware but nothing was found.
Any ideas/help/ comments would be appreciated...
