    Hello, I am experiencing some problems when turning Windows Features on/off. After doing a sfc /scannow in an elevated command prompt, Windows found integrity violations in lsass.exe. It seems that I have a corrupted lsass.exe. SFC cannot repair it as the one it is using to replace is also corrupted. I found a Windows tutorial in how to replace a corrupted file. Note: I am using Windows 7 x64 Home Premium. I tried in safe mode but still failed.I want to try a repair install but this is a laptop, and no Windows installation disc are given, only recovery disc which I can't find anymore. (This is already 3 yrs old).
    Attached is the sfc logs.
    I found this tutorial in the Windows website.
    Is it safe to do it in lsass.exe?
