Specs: Windows XP as you already guess,i have a
A few days ago i got a virus,and for like 4 days
i've been scaning and removing viruses,but it
seems they're one step ahead of me. I think
the center of all this problem is a virus named
''agent akuv''. I was a step away from getting
rid of them but like a stupid i connected to the
internet, and bam, computer crash(blue
screen) and the next thing i know is that the
file system from the config folder in system32
etc, was corrupted or missing. So i installed
another windows on a different partition,
somehow got the system file from a friend,
replaced it in the config folder, then i did a
repair too...and now i have this stupid error
with lsass.exe as in like ''When trying to
update a password the return status indicates
that the value provided as the current
password is not correct.'' and then the
computer restarts. Oh and the other windows
didn't install correctly also, dunno why. So can
anyone help me, please ? Oh and excuse my
badly written english.

Do you have a windows cd or a reinstallation cd , some call it a recovery cd?

Yes,i do have a windows cd, the one you install the windows
from, or repair it, or you acces the recovery console. But I have a
problem with this recovery console, i can't get past the
administrator password question. I don't have any administrator
password, but if i leave it blank it says password invalid.

If you have a password to log on to the computer use that password. If there is more that one account on the computer any password with administrative privileges should work.

If you do not then try to create one, sometimes this works and sometimes it does not but you have to be able to boot into safe mode.

Shut the computer down for thirty seconds> restart the computer and tap F8 as it is booting until the option screen appears then choose safe mode. Select the administrative account.

Next go to start> control panel> user accounts> select your account> add a password to it or reset the password. Restart the computer.

Run the cd again and use the new password.

Unfortunately I can't get in using safe mode either. It gives me
exactly the same error, the lsass.exe error.

Your problem is a corrupt registry.

I would do a xp repair, you would have to reinstall the windows updates but may be faster in the long run.

But if you are determined to to continue you will probably need a to to reset the NT passwords and sometimes that will not do the trick. You will need to google for one of the NT password reseters

There is a registry edit that will work but requires a bootable disk that you will need to make and a little registry know how. If you want to try that copy this link into your browser:
