Problem - lsass.exe is running for first 10 minutes after boot. It is eating up all of my processing resources and makes boot up very frustrating. I tried the fxsasser from symantec bu it is not a virus. Is it something that is running in startup? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

"lsass.exe" is the Local Security Authentication Server. It verifies the validity of user logons to your PC/Server. It generates the process responsible for authenticating users for the Winlogon service. The lsass.exe which is from Microsoft is located in the c:\windows\System32 folder. There's a few viruses that have been found to run as lsass to hide from you, [email protected], [email protected], W32.Nimos.Worm, and W32.Sasser.E.Worm (Lsasss.exe). Make sure you have your antivirus updated and scan to ensure your not infected, but lsass is a system file that's required.
