    What is csrss.exe?

    What is csrss.exe. A search on the internet has brought up the
    following web page saying in one paragraph that it is 'registered as a
    Trojan.'
    Then in another paragraph it says 'The Microsoft Client Server Runtime
    Server subsystem'

    http://www.liutilities.com/products/...library/csrss/

    I don't understand.

    porn website changed it.
    it happened to a guy I worked with years ago.
    he had to do all the antivirus cleaning stuff.
    try to find the file on your backup dvd or another computer and paste it in safe mode

    Not necessarily a virus. Its a windows process which deals with user logins .

    In what scenario are you getting this error to show. In Vista there is no csrss.exe.
    This you will find it in XP and W2K3 only . Apart from that depending in the
    scenario it is a Ahlem. A worm otherwise known as csrss.exe

    I see this in Task Manager|Processes. When I right clicked
    on it and select 'End Process' my system rebooted and displayed
    the bad shut down screen. Now I don't have any options when
    I right click other than 'Perform Administrative Tasks'
    I'm using Vista Home Basic sp1.

    Re: What is csrss.exe?

    My Vista Ultimate x86 (32 bit) has the file c:\windows\system32\csrss.exe.
    It's been a core component of the Windows desktop since at least Windows
    2000. I have also seen references to csrss.exe flagged as a trojan program
    on some web-sites. A google search just now reports that only AuditMyPC.com
    is reporting it as a virus. Given that AuditMyPC.com doesn't seem to know
    that this file is part of Windows, I would strongly advice avoiding this
    site.
