I am runnng Windows XP, I have performed system restore and now when I start up I get the error message, "lsass.exe. system error". in the box it says when trying to update this return status indicates that the value provided as the current password is not correct. It then closes down and starts up again and I get the message and it will not start up!! it keeps going round and round. It does the same in safe mode. I have tried to press f8 and install windows from the discs but this does not work. My XP is on a partition. I have no floppy drive on my other pc. What do I do??

The lsass service manages system users and their passwords. I think you should try to use your old password, whichc corresponds to the new system setings restored by the system restore service. Else a better option would be try reinstaling windows from a bootable disk. You dont need a floppy for that. Just change your boot sequence to look into cdrom drive first for bootup files. This should give you an option to reinstal lthe OS. ALl the best buddy. :)
