  • Hello There,

     

    Since Morning most of my domain users are receving the SYSTEM SHUTDOWN message continuously and the system are getting restart every 10 minutes. if anyone can help, as I am in big trouble.

     

    The details message is as follows:

     

    "This system is shutting down. please work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. this shutdown  was initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM"

     

    The system process

     

    "C:\WINNT\system32\lsass.exe" terminated unexpectedly with status code 128. The system will now shut down and restart.

     

    Any advise could be a great help!

     

    Kind Regards,

     

    Mohammed Muzaffar.

    Carrier.

  • Try to download smitfraudfix.exe on a flash drive using another PC. transfer it to your PC and double click to execute. Make sure that you are not connected to the internet and temporarily disable any antivirus software, because they tend to detect smitfraudfix.exe as a malware... Attempt to run this first in safe mode, and if it does not work, run in normal mode. Just select "CLEAN" when you run it. It would restart your PC then and everything would be fine. Just google smitfraudfix.exe

     

    Hope you'll get your PC working nicely again.
