LSASS application does not start up

April 28, 2009 at 06:53:30
Specs: Windows XP
Last night firefox was running very slowly. I got a virus popup from avast so I deleted what it found.
This morning I start up XP and I get an LSASS application cannot start error. So basically I cannot boot into XP. I'm using 2K right now and it seems to be working fine. Only now I missing a whole hard drive listing in My Computer. I can't even find the drive in Ubuntu. What could be my problem?

Thanks,
~mark

What does bios show?

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

bios shows that the device is still there.
I did some further digging and found that the drive has lost
partitions. I'm trying a partition recovery software demo to see if
that fixes it. I just haven't heard of the Lsass error causing hard
drive corruption.

That is the trouble with virus's. They cause all sorts of damage. You might have more than one virus.
