I have lsass. exe in
c\windows\system32 and
c\windows\system32\dllcache though I was able to delete it from c\windows.servicepackfiles\i386

I ran eztrust, noadware, symantec removal and microsoft removal KB841720 but none of them detect it.

MS states to download security update 835732 but the download fails every time.... although that is only involved in preventing reinfection anyway, so my first priority is what will find and remove the worm?

Lets get a Hijackthis log from you.

Download HijackThis from here. Make a new folder for the program and then open it, click Scan. When it finishes scanning, do no remove anything but instead save the log and post it here. Someone will then come along and further help you.

A few updates;
I finally got the ms critical security downloads installed and I reinstalled the ms sasser tool.
OK, sasser is lsasss. exe and what I posted above from an ms search is lsass. exe and might be innocuous. . . if it's not W32.Nimos.Worm
However, my dsl is very sluggish especially with logins and mail and I did have a mysterious lpa or lsa (?) shell incident that zonealarm blocked.

Thank you. Why am I deleting those two? Are there ways to trace exactly which virus I had and exactly how I got it?

Also, what causes my email box usage to be so much slower than normal browsing? Clicking to open an email with dsl often feels like 14.4kps dialup.

Ad-aware labeled Noadware as a possible hijack and as a "blacklisted" program. I quarantined it. Is Noadware legitimate or not?

NoAdware is a bogus anti-adware program and you should uninstall it.

Also lsass.exe is a legitimate windows process. It does not indicate that you have the Sasser worm.

lsass.exe = Windows Local Security Authority Server Process handles Windows security mechanisms. It verifies the validity of user logons to your computer or server. Technically, the software generates the process that is responsible for authenticating users for the Winlogon service.

Yes, I noted the lsass as legitimate in my second post, though my system still had the sluggish symptom. I did many system cleanups and updates and my system seems better now. Noadware did not show up in ms add/delete so I manually deleted the folder because I did not trust noadware's "unistall."

I was concerned about multiple svchost and rundll32 but no one here has objected to those in my log.
