    I have in my possession a 2009 13" MSI X340 laptop with the following specifications:

    Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (build 6002)
    a 1.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Solo CPU
    2 GB RAM
    Fujitsu MJA2320BH 320 GB Hard Drive
    Micro-Star International MS-1352 Ver 1.0 Motherboard

    This computer's CPU gets overloaded with about 90% usage in the lsass.exe process, once Google chrome is opened on any user account. I tried re-installing Google Chrome (a possible solution I found on other forum posts in the internet) but it did not help.

    Let me know if there is any other information you guys need to help; I haven't posted in these forums in a while and I apologize if the format of this post doesn't follow any of the guidelines here.
