Re: Vista 32 bit OS - lsass.exe file missing
The backup copy of Lsass.exe can be found on your original Windows install
disk in the folder DRIVE:\i386\lsass.ex_
Because the backup copy is compressed, you need to copy the .ex_ file into
your System32 folder, then rename it from ".ex_" to ".exe".
Hope this helps.
