Flie Name: csrss.exe Product:
Author: Microsoft Corporation Security Rating:

The csrss.exe is a process utilized by the Microsoft Client Server Runtime Server subsystem to manage a majority of the graphical instructions under Windows operating system. Its critical function is to control threading and Win32 console window features, such as creating and/or deleting threads, and implementing some portions of the 16-bit virtual MS-DOS environment. Threading is where the application splits itself into multiple simultaneous running tasks. Threads supported by csrss.exe are different from processes in that threads are commonly contained within the process, with various threads sharing resources within the same process. The Win32 console is the plain text window in the Windows API system (programs can use the console without the need for image display).

csrss.exe is a process which is registered as a trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.

Recommendation:

The csrss.exe should not be disabled. It is required for essential applications to work properly, as it provides the critical functions of the operating system. Termination of it can result in the Blue Screen of Death.

This process should be treated as suspicious if there are two instances running. Always take note of the process location when trying to determine whether or not the process is required or malicious.This Windows component should be located in your Windows System directory ie: something similar to C:\Windows\System32\csrss.exe

My csrss.exe is in /??/C:WINDOWS/system/32. What is the signficance of the /??/ prefix? None of my other Win Sys 32 file seem to have it. Does this make it dangerous?

\"csrss.exe is a process which is registered as a Trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.\" If this is true why do you recommend not dissembling it, is there not a more sure way to delete and reestablish it. Where is the whole the hackers are coming through?

This is a necessary windows service and should always be running. Csrss stands for client/server run-time subsystem and must be running at all times for stable operation to continue. *WARNING* If you find it outside of the folder, c:\windows\system32\ then it's most likely malware and is possibly a trojan!
