lsass.exe high memory usage? Tags: Memory Usage Lsass.Exe Windows 7 Last response: July 10, 2012 6:29 PM in Windows 7 Share akg101 July 10, 2012 5:22:56 PM Hello, I've lately been experiencing some peculiar issues with my PC - most notably, excessive usage of lsass.exe. Starts off very low memory use - ~5mb, but steadily climbs up. It's been 4 hours since I've turned my PC on and currently, it's at 150mb usage. Last night by the end of the night it was close to 1GB. I know all about the Sasser worm, and this is not it. I've done all of the malware scans (Malwarebytes, Spybot, Hijack This), virus scans (ESET NOD32), etc. Nothing. My PC stats: Windows 7 Core i7 920 Gigabyte EX58-UD4P 6GB DDR3 3x HDD's (WD640AALS, WD1001FALS, WD20EADS) I tend to have ~60-70 processes running at one time.. Most of which are Chrome and svchost processes. Here is a pic of my process manager that shows most of my processes. http://oi47.tinypic.com/30uxuky.jpg Please someone for the love of god help!!
