    I have a laptop that won't start up properly. When starting it comes up with the following error message.....

    lsass.exe - System Error. Object Name Not Found. OK.

    I've tried a Windows repair using the original SP1 disc but that hasn't fixed it. The error message also comes up when starting in Safe Mode. I've tried Last Known Good Configuration but that doesn't work either.

    When I click OK on the error message it just restarts and loops straight back to the error message again.

    Is there anything else I can do before trying a full reinstallation?

    Thanks :)

    Your compter might be infected let's try HijackThis to see how bad

    To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
    Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe
    Save the file to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
    Open a TechSupportGuy forum Reply window under Internet & Networking in Security for this thread, to have ready to paste the Hijackthis log into. Click once to place the typing cursor in the reply window.
    At the top of your TSG/browser window, hit Edit then Paste
    You should see your copied Hijackthis log appear in the reply space....then, submit the reply and copy and paste the link in the address bar back to the original thread you were in.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    Thanks folks. I wondered about a virus problem.

    Unfortunately I can't get it to start at all, even in safe mode. I can however get the XP1 cd to run at start up. I've never used the repair console option. Is there anything in there I can use?
