Windows 10: LSASS.EXE produces memory leak on Windows 10
Because lsass.exe is a crucial system file, its name is often faked by malware. The lsass.exe file used by Windows is located in the directory Windows\System32. If it is running from any other location, that lsass.exe is most likely a virus, spyware, trojan or worm. Due to the way some systems display fonts, malicious developers may name the file something like Isass.exe (capital "i" instead of a lowercase "L") in efforts to trick users into installing or executing a malicious file instead of the trusted system file.
Download and run Anti MalwareBytes.
Many thanks for your answer, orlbuckeye,
What you tell is the first thing I tried and checked. I ran Malwarebytes and checked the first letter was "L" and not "I". The problem is caused by the real "LSASS.EXE".
Have you looked on the LSA providers tab of autoruns? Might be a place to start.
