Some might say this is a cop out, but I don't trust antiv-virus software to rtuly remove everything. And since we know Windows is a bit of a bloated beast and grinds to a halt over time, I suggest you back up critical data and rebuild the box.

Totally kill the partitions and do a long format then just re-install Windows. You'll know your virus is gone and you'll probably see a performance gain as well. Shouldn't take you two hours of watching TV and occassionally clicking next and what not.

Or you could spend hour upon hour going over each process and trying to figure out if it's the REAL lsass.exe or do it have a space at the end you can't see and it's really a virus. Or trying to figure out how it re-installs itself everytime you remove it. Diminishing returns my friend. Diminishing returns.

install a GOOD antivirus program BEFORE you copy your data from the backup.

There is NO excuse for not running an antivirus program on your computer, except laziness. There are several FREE ones available.
