csrss.exe is the main executable for the Microsoft Client/Server Runtime Server Subsystem. This process manages most graphical commands in Windows. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated
Deleting everything to do with csrss.exe was not a good idea. What I suggest you do is put in your XP CD, clicking EXIT to close the window that appears after it is autorun by the computer. Then go to START-->RUN and type sfc /scannow
, noting the space between sfc and /scannow. This will check all of your windows operating system files and fix any that are corrupt/missing. Once the blue bar goes away reboot your computer.Note
: csrss.exe is also process which is registered as the W32.Netsky.AB@mm worm, w32.sober worm, the W32.Webus Trojan, Win32.Ladex.a, W32.Rontokbro.K@mm and more. This virus is distributed via the Internet through e-mail and comes in the form of an e-mail message, in the hopes that you open itís hostile attachment. The worm has itís own SMTP engine which means it gathers E-mails from your local computer and re-distributes itself. In worst cases this worm can allow attackers to access your computer, stealing passwords and personal data. It is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately.
Given the above information, once your computer is rebooted, go to the Malware Forum
and post a HiJackThis log in THAT forum to let an expert take a look at it and make sure there isn't anything nasty left lurking around in your computer.
