You most likely have the Sasser worm.
You can download a fix for that here:

Try Sasser removal just in case; however, I don't believe your problem is Sasser. What you describe are not Sasser symptoms.

If I am correct, you are doing a repair installation of XP and Lsass error appears diring repair installation.

Instructions for a repair installation are at link below:

Ensure that a repair installation is what you are performing.

Post back with exactly when error occurs in XP installation.

For more info on Lsass see:

Are you able to get into Safe Mode?

You may want to try running an antivirus fix via dos emulation through safe mode.
