Trojan error message
I removed the following:
- In addition to this, a Trojan has been designed which shows in the starting of Windows, "csrss.exe is not compatible with Win32 mode." The user or reader of this error message will then surf the net to look this up, and see a few threads which suggests the deletion of csrss.exe, which results in the Blue Screen of Death. A few posts will be seen suggesting other means of dealing with the Trojan, but one should be extremely careful with these posts. It is better to consult an expert before attempting to deal with this error message or Trojan virus.
No citations were provided for this, and the particular error message wording given is unknown to Google, so it's hard to be sure what this might be referring to. But as written this makes no sense. Any malware being executed during Windows startup already has more than enough control of your machine to cause catastrophic damage on its own, and would not need to display confusing error messages to trick you into Googling for instructions to delete a system file. --Saucepan (talk) 01:06, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
Csrss.exe can't run in Windows mode - it starts before Windows GUI starts. To fix this problem, ensure that csrss.exe is not listed in MSCONFIG and delete the following file: C:\WINDOWS\csrss.exe —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:38, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
Killing the csrss.exe in Vista
In Vista, the csrss.exe process is completely killable with Task Manager - but it must be run in Admin mode. Just click on the "Show proccesses from all users" checkbox, confurm the UAC prompt if applicable, then find and end csrss.exe. Doing so is not recommended, as it will immediately result in a Blue Screen(TM) and eventually, loss of all unsaved data. --HTMLCODER.exe (talk) 03:15, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
what CSRSS do to your computer...
Is it dangerous? - for me, its not dangerous coz im a windows user. but... - it works the same as a term that you may know 'keylogger' ext>>follow this step to check it:
1. Press CONTROL - ALT - DELETE. 2. Go to 'Processes' tab. 3. Press 'View on your sub-menu', and make sure
- > Click on View->Select Columns' and make sure 'I/O Reads' is CHECKED'. - > Click on 'View->Update Speed->High'
And, it will show you whenever you move or stop your interaction with keyboard and mouse, it will show you its changes... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:17, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
Windows 7 warns it will shut down the system immediately
This system has two instances running with different memory sizes and both warn killing the process will shut down the system immediately. It should be mentioned explicitly if the application is asummed by Microsoft to run more than one instance simultaneously. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 01:11, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
multiple instances of csrss.exe running at the same time.
The main article talks extensively about not terminating this process but never speaks to how man copies of this process should exist. Wouldn't one instance be sufficient? Would multiple instances of the process running at the same time be indicative of a system problem that should be researched and corrected or is that normal? If it is normal, is there a relationship between the number of copies of the process and something about the system such as the number of cores or the number of processors or the number of applications running or the number of console windows open? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:04, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
