Windows XP Shutdown -- Status Code 1073741819

I have a user who has an XP machine w/ SP2 and has the most current updates installed on his computer. He has recently been having shut down issues.  

He will receive a message box referencing "lsass.exe: 0x012e0178 referenced at 0x00000000 can't be written".  He clicks on the OK button then will receive :

"System Shutdown: This system is shutting down.  Please save all work in progress and log off.  Any unsaved changes will be lost.  This shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM, and gives a 60 second timer before it shuts down.  The message in the System Shutdown box lists status code 1073741819.  

When the computer restarts, and the user logs in, he will receive a Data Execution Prevention message citing LSA Shell (Export Version).

Thinking it was a virus issue, I did a full scan with Sophos, Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool, no virus was detected.  In addition used Symantec's removal tool for Sasser and Blaster, and neither found anything.

Any thoughts on what I can do or what the issue might be.

Thanks!

search for lsass on you pc to find if more than one exists (should be c:\windows\system32)
try slaving the drive to another computer or put it in a usb enclosure, then do a full drive scan on all files.

Thanks for the suggestion.  There is only lsass on the computer.  I slaved the drive and did a couple different scans on the drive with no result.

Problem: LSA Shell (Export Version) has encountered a problem and needs to close.
Then: C:\Windows\System32\ Isass.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code 1073741819.

Unfortunately, I have already run Microsoft's Malicious Software Removal Tool, Stinger, Symantec's Removal Tool with no result.  Also, avserve.exe cannot be found anywhere on the computer nor the registry.  I am at the point where I am going to rebuild the computer unless you have any other thoughts.  Thanks for your suggestions and help.
