I constantly got a message before on my desktop when i logged onto my used account that said csrss.exe could not be found. Not sure what i did, but i got rid of that message. Now i was doing some reading on the internet that says that csrss.exe could be a virus file disguised as the actual file. I then looked in the task manager processes but could not find csrss. I went into my startup processes in msconfig and found csrss in there and it was checked but the command section was blank. I read that csrss shouldn't be in the startup because it starts automatically so i unchecked it and rebooted my computer and now csrss is showing up in the task manager. Do i have anything to be worried about?

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

If the computer is free of problems now then there is nothing you should worry about. Run a scan with your antivirus and a good antimalware program like Malwarebytes or Superantispyware (which you should do once in a while anyway)and that's it.

Not really. It's only a little eruption after being dormant for some time.

:) Well welcome back and always a pleasure to work alongside of you. I appreciate the help with the second set of eyes. Especially since my sight is getting worse. :)
