    My computer went out when there was a power circuit overload that tripped the breaker. After that windows gave an error "LSASS - Unable to Load Component ?????" error. I should have ran the System File Checker as everyone in Google recommends, but where I was I didn't have an internet connection to look it up. I started the Windows XP in-place reinstall instead, but now when Windows Setup loads it gives the same LSASS error except it doesn't mention any file, it merely says "lsass.exe: unable to load component" at the top of the error window, and the dialog says, sic: "the application has failed to start because." No matter what I do, it will keep popping up. Also Windows Setup won't complete, it just reboots the computer. Spinrite did find one bad sector on the drive, so I will redo the in-place reinstall. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this in the meantime?
