    im on my compter right now. the problem is occuring on my windows
    professional all started when i downloaded a program that let a
    back door trojan horse into my laptop. after i downloaded windows defender
    and used it it said that 2 malicious programs were found and deleted. i also
    used my sbc yahoo anti-virus and anti-spyware program and they came up with
    no kind of infections. but i still had this little critical system error icon
    in my taskbar below and when i clicked on it, it would bring me to a site
    that had some type of anti-virus program every time. i didnt i download any
    of the products cuz i already had an anti-virus program that was up to dat
    and running properly but i did download a spyware program called spyware
    doctor. i got the official version and scanned for spyware. the results came
    back with 57 spyware infections, nothing like wat my yahoo anti-spyware said.
    so i used the advanced tools they had and deleted the infections and it asked
    me to reboot and so i did. and when the windows XP loading thing finished, it
    took me to my profile log in thingy but instead of my log in box showing up,
    a box that says "lsass.exe system error" along with "endpoint format
    invalid" with and OK button. when i press it OK it restarts and starts the
    whole process all over again. i tried every possible solution in the F8
    button menu but nothing is working, it shows the same box over and over again.

    any one know how to get my lap top to function properly again?

  2. You got infected again because you didn't use a firewall. Or the program
    you chose deliberately disabled your firewall.

    At this point in time, you may want to think about clean installing... ie
    formatting the hard drive, starting again and remembering to enable your
    firewall BEFORE you even think about connecting the PC to the internet.

    Sage advice. Both firewall and A/V should be active and current. If you
    have lots of files on the 'lost' system, you can install a USB drive and
    copy the old system. Do the restore, and copy only known safe data over
    from the copy. Music and picture files should be no problem.

  4. If you are using XP Pro SP2, keep in mind that it is 32 bits. This is the
    XP Pro x64 (64 bits) newsgroup so you may find a much wider audience at

    the XP wont even bring me into the profile log in thing anymore. all it does
    is say "endpoint format invalid" after it dus its little loading thing. and
    when you press "okay" the computer restarts and the process starts all over
    again. when i press the F8 button it gives me planty of options but it does
    say the specific words "system restore" it has something like that and when i
    press it and it says that drive C has been restored or something like that,
    itll take me to the windows XP loading thing and when it finishes itll say
    the sam e shyt again. "endpoint format invalid" and yes my antivirus is up to

    possible root kit sounds likely in 32 bit system. If so you are in for some
    interesting pc courses and trial by error of ridding certain ones.... but
    once u press "f8 to agree to license agreement" u should get options of
    installing FRESH COPY OF WINDOWS XP ==THE ONE U WANT if boot sector not
