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'

csrss.exe - csrss - Process Information

I don't understand.

James

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.

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.

As you found out you cannot rely on answers on the newsgroup as gospel. Also
any site that says a name is a Trojan with an offer to download it's
software to fix the problem is a Trojan in itself just trying to sell you
their software.
