lsass.exe is a critical windows file.  If it's corrupted, you'll need to reinstall.  Here's information on it, after you read you'll know why you don't have any choice but repair/reinstall

You can wait and try loging in again later. If you entered the PW incorrectly a number of times your account could be locked for some time. Also make sure you don't have caps lock set, or if it is a notebook it could also be possible that numlock is on, in which case some of the keys which usually are letters would now be numbers.

If you are logging on to a network there could also be a problem with the servers.
