    Just today I started getting this error right when the login screen would
    come up for Window XP. I haven't changed anything on the computer, just
    started happening randomly. the error message says:

    lsass.exe-system error
    an invalid parameter was passed to a service or function

    I looked up lsass.exe and it has to do with the login screen. When I press
    ok it just reboots. Same with safe mode, and all of the modes on the F8
    menu. Right now I have the hard drive in this computer as the slave, because
    I did some virus scanning and stuff. Any help would be great.

    Unless somebody else can come up with something else, I suggest that you do
    a Repair install of Windows XP.

    A guide on how to do a repair install for Windows XP can be found here:
