    I'm trying to reply to "pacinitaly" in my post:
    What is csrss.exe?
    I've replied twice and after 5 minutes I can't see my replies.
    Can anyone else see my replies or is just me??

    I don't see any replies I made to "pacinitaly"
    I do see my replies to "Peter Foldes"
    The replies are in my sent items in windows mail. Can't figure this out.

    Thanks,
    James

    I've already done that. I'm a bit concerned that it's a worm 'cause I was
    told
    the file is used only in Windows XP.

  6. No, it's in Vista too. That doesn't mean the one you have ISN'T a worm,
    but it's mere existence doesn't tell us that one way or the other. Do
    you have CSRSS.EXE in a folder other than %systemroot%\system32\ ?

    Have you scanned your system with more than one anti-malware product?

    The only instance I can find using Search is in %systemroot%\system32\.
    I'm currently running AVG Free scan (paused) and I also ran
    a scan with Windows Defender.
    Although I do recall seeing it 2 times in processes.
    One thing I might bring up here. When I right clicked on it and selected
    'End Process'
    my computer restarted top a blue screen with much info but before I can
    gather
    any of it I was presented with Vista's bad shutdown screen (or what ever
    it's called
    with the startup options, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with network...). Is this
    normally what
    happens when one shuts down the process if it's a Vista process?

  8. Have you run any anti-malware programs yet or are you spending all
    your time here posting and then looking for your older posts?

  12. Hello James,

    Go to Jotti's site

    <http://virusscan.jotti.org/>

    In the file to upload area press Browse then follow the path to the exe file :

    Then press Submit and copy and paste the results to notepad and save them so
    you can post back the results if needed.


    This could well be a false positive.

    One way to get further information is to find

    CSRSS.EXE

    on your system, and submit the file at one or more of the following sites:

    <http://www.virustotal.com>

    <http://virusscan.jotti.org>

    Each has a browse window in the upper right to do the submission, and will
    check out your file with 10 or so antivirus vendors with one submission.

    In the file to upload area press Browse then follow the path to the exe
    file: CSRSS.EXE

    Then press Submit and copy and paste the results to notepad and save them so
    you can post back the results if needed.

    A clean reading at these sites is not proof that a file is safe, but I'd say
    in this case that it is likely to be a good indicator that, in fact, the file
    is safe, and you are seeing a false positive.

    Also, You can submit a sample from here:

    <http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/>
    --

    If you submit the suspicious file(s) to http://virscan.org/index.php
    and "if the file you upload is detected as suspicious, VirSCAN
    will send the file and report off to the antivirus vendors participating in
    the
    VirSCAN service to be analyzed. Antivirus companies will update the
    signature virus database if a real malware is found." Microsoft, McAfee,
    Symantec, and many other security software vendors participate.

    It would be a good idea to scan.

    I recommend downloading and installing MalwareBytes' Antimalware (MBAM) and
    SUPERAntiSpywaÑe (SAS).

    Do a full scan with MalwaÑeBytes' and SUPERAntiSpywaÑe.

    <http://www.superantispyware.com/>

    Reboot
    -=-

    <http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php>
    Reboot
    -=-
    The programs are free. (There is a paid version but you don't need to buy it
    to remove malware.)
    -=-


    Good luck
