Lsass.exe high cpu utilization

By mrmikeschmit ·
Lsass.exe is using about 90% of my cpu on a domain controller. There is plenty of memory available. Any help would be great.

There were a couple of different situations that might cause problems in the LSASS process. Most of them were fixed in SP4 for Windows 2K according to MS documentation. I'd recommend running SP4 if you haven't already done so and then see if the behavior is fixed. Hope this helps!

There are also at least a few viruses that use the same filename to run. I'd perform a scan using updated AV software before anything else.
