Hello Waren

csrss.exe is a Trojan which will steal ur pswrds and give a chance to

 

remote control your pc.

It has to be removed immedietly.

I'm afraid I have to disagree with you Rachana.

 

csrss.exe is one of the essential processes for windows, and it's not neccesarily a trojan, so don't panic.

 

However, I can't really help you with the high cpu usage.

 Hold on a bit on that… Csrss.exe also happens to be a legit Windows Process. Messing with it might compromise your system.

I'm looking into ur problem. I'm not familiar with that Sony Vegas app so it might take me a while.

Which OS are you using?

@Rachana, Csrss.exe is not a Trojan, it is the Client Server Runtime Process, please be more careful when giving advice.Confused

 

@Warren, csrss.exe can be a trojan in disguise but it is not a definate, Warren you should scan your PC if you believe it may be infected. The high processor usage could be anything, the program you are trying to run could be causing an overload in CPU usage. try scanning for viruses and see what comes up, then try Process Tamer, i am pretty sure we have had an issue similar to this before so try it.

 

@Rachana, please be more careful and more descriptive when posting things like this as you can worry the user over nothing. csrss.exe as i have said is the Client Server Runtime Process and is needed as a vital system component, if he were to delete this process he could destroy his machine. Yes it COULD be a virus but as i said it might not, so be more careful as you could have destroyed this man's OS. Just simply suggest it next time and say you should scan your PC with Malwarebytes or something to that persuasion.

Difficult, to be sure…..but it shall be done!!

 Simple way to find out if it's a virus or not…

@Warren:

Go to Task Manager and under the Processes tab, see how many Csrss.exe you have running. More than one means a virus (usually the one in Caps).

Contradiction!

 

There can be up to two as far as i have seen.Smile

But if there is one in Capitals then the one in capitals is a virus.

Haha! Same with me, I thought it was a virus when I searched up on a few sites! But when I went deeper, some said it was a legit process. Here, I'll provide a link to a few sites explaining it: http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/csrss/

 

Now here's something I extracted form the small article:

"2) The Microsoft Client Server Runtime Server subsystem utilizes the process csrss.exe for managing the majority of the graphical instruction sets under the Microsoft Windows operating system."

 

You see that my friend? csrss.exe may be a trojan OR a legit process. But mostly, it's a legit process. If you have any programs which provides a flash scan, then it could determine if csrss.exe is a trojan or not. But don't be feared my friend, it may not be a virus at all. :)

 

One last thing… if you happen to own a paid copy of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, you can perform a flash scan to check if your computer contains any viruses at all.

 

Or no wait, processes are run from registries am I correct? Can someone confirm that? If so, does this mean Warren over there, can you Malwarebytes, do a quick/full scan, and if he finds anything that contains viruses, the supposing Trojan which is always processed on task manager be deleted? Someone please confirm this. Thanks.

Hi All .. Was away and only checked forum today !

1] Thanks for all advice !

2] My csrss.exe is in lower case (only one copy) .. I have scanned with AVG and system is clear of viruses ..

3] My OS is Windows XP service pack 3 ..

I am looking at Process Tamer & Mawarebytes suggestion tonight ..

4] Yes .. Sony Vegas may be memory/resource hungry BUT surely not simply when starting program .. when rendering sure it overloads the memory & resources .. AND I HAVE USED MANY TIMES BEFORE this sudden CPU issue ??

5] I use ADOBE PS 5 which is just as memory hungry and no issue .. SO IT APPEARS to be only SONY VEGAS 7 & 8 that have this problem ??

6] ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS FRIENDS ??

Thanks

Warren
