Is this a virus lssas.exe?
I am in the process of moving my programs and settings from my old pc to a new pc. I purchased software PC Mover in the hope that the transfer would be simple. However during the process I received a message ;The system is shutting down. Save all work etc. This shutdown was initiated by NT Authority/System message The system process G:\Windows\system32\lsass.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code -1073741674. System will shut down and restart.
I was unable to use this software as even with a clean boot on both pc's before process it still shuts down. Tried several solutions and have now discovered when I look at the start up program panel by Mike Lin there is an entry under HKLM/RUN - Run these programs from the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (all users) Run registry key.
Name lssas Monitoring Startup Path lssas.exe
According to the web this lssas.exe in nothing to do with Microsoft (lsass.exe) and likely to be a worm. I have scanned with ZA suite for virus/spyware but shows pc okay. I have also did a search for lssas.exe on the pc again with no results.
I do not know if this file is causing pcmover to crash but can anyone advise if I can safely delete this file from my pc or is there a specific way to remove this? The icing on the cake would be if anyone can tell me why my system is shutting down when using pcmover. Their tech dept is trying without success so far.
Any advice appreciated. Thanks
