isass.exe with an small caps L is a vital windows process and nt a virus. However viruses go under the name Isass.exe(Note this is an I not L) so they appear as vital windows process and not a virus.

I made the mistake of deleting it from my registry thinking it was the virus instead of the virus being inside the thread. Now I realize that lsass is a needed component. So far all that I have noticed is that I can\'t search my C: drive. Anyone know where to download a clean copy of lsass since my laptop didn\'t come with an installation CD.
