Angry lsass.exe!!! Er Whats Happening?!

Alright well my computer has been going super slow and the cpu is almost always at 100% so when I go to look at it, I found out this lsass.exe is taking all my cpu. Does anyone know what this is?!
Thanks A lot

It looks like this


lsass.exe SYSTEM 88 90 ( A high percent of CPU) 2028 Mem usage.

Thanks Again

lssas.exe is a important process in windows that helps protect files like Windows SAM. However the Sober virus also sometimes names itself lssas.exe

Is there some way I can get rid of it? I tried doing a virus scan but got nothing.

Hmm your symptoms don't match though.

It might be the real lsass.exe .... :S

You can't stop it because it's security....try running in safe mode.

Try downloading Hijackthis and past the notepad in this site:
http://www.hijackthis.de/

If that shows up in the list for bad running programs, you can delete it.
I did the same thing with a svchost virus and its gone now. ^.^
