I obtained my copy of Windows 7 RTM from MSDN AA and have been loving it ever since I installed it, all except for one problem.
My computer is part of an active directory domain. I keep getting the following two errors:
Faulting application name: lsass.exe, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bc155
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5be02b
Exception code: 0xc0000374
Fault offset: 0x00000000000c6cd2
Faulting process id: 0x234
Faulting application start time: 0x01ca23c92c9a9900
Faulting application path: C:\Windows\system32\lsass.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll
Report Id: 1772eae8-9017-11de-a36a-001e8cb7e844
About a second after that error, I get the next error:
A critical system process, C:\Windows\system32\lsass.exe, failed with status code 255. The machine must now be restarted.
A message then appears saying "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute. Please save your work now." and then the computer restarts a minute later.
I've found that I can cause the problem in two similar ways:
1. I open Windows Media Center then watch videos, listen to music, etc. Close Media Center and lock my computer. Then when immediately after I unlock the computer, the message appears.
2. I lock my computer, then unlock it afterwards (I can do that as many times as I like without the message appearing). As soon as I open Media Center the message appears.
Being that there seems to be a problem in lsass.exe or ntdll.dll I pulled copies of them from my installation disc and ran an MD5 checksum comparing the ones in C:\Windows\System32 to those from the installation disc. There were no differences between them.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
