Isass.exe error: Insufficient ResourcestoCompleteAPI-SASSER?

By greglangner ·
I'm caught in the endless loop of "System Error:Isass.exe:Insufficient system recources to complete the API."

HELLLLP!!! I cannot run any tool or patch or scan the drive w/ any software b/c XP(Home SP2)will not reboot - just keeps looping.

I tried running in Safe Mode..tried Last Good Configuration...tried Debugging Mode...Boot Partition, etc etc..

I even tried booting from the original XP cd on the D_drive...NADA!

I should prob mention that right b4 this happened, I tried running software that partitions your hard drive enabling you to run several OS from same machine - or, in this case, get Sasser-ized! (I also had stupidly opened some susceptible ports while tryinig to to configure a BitTorrent client)..

I have a Winternals Commmander Remote Recover 2005 boot disk made, a Nero BackItUp .ISO of the entire C_drive, etc. but not quite sure how they can help me at this point.

If anyone has any info, I'd REALLY appreciate it.
Anyone have any ideas?

Try running a repair with the XP cd

Do you have access to another computer with current spyware, av and ad scanners? If so, pull out the offending drive, set it to slave, insert it into the second computer and scan the offending drive these 3 scanners.

While in the second computer, you might also want to save any info you really need to a folder on that computer.

When you reinsert the drive into the original machine, hopefully you will be able to at least use the original XP cd to either repair or reinstall the OS.

If the above doesn't work (and you do have access to another PC) back up all the data you want to keep. With the other PC delete and recreate the partition(s) to the way it was before the partition software and reformat the drive. Use your .ISO backup to restore to the formatted drive and try it again.

If you can't boot to anything,HD,CD or floppy, then your computer is toast. You can try putting your drive in a second machine to as others have stated, but be careful to do a full scan first so you don't transfer the problem to the new computer. If you can boot the second computer from a Bart PE CD you'll be safer.
