    Default csrss.exe

    Okay so, I have a problem with this lovely little Trojan horse and I would like some help in removing it.

    I know that this is normally an important file for Window XPs and normally resides in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 file. I actually have two files named csrss.exe, one in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 and another in C:\WINDOWS\Config. I know the one in C:\WINDOWS\Config is a virus because one it's in the wrong file and two it states that it was created on 7/16/08.

    I have tried deleting it but it didn't work.

    Any help would be much loved. Thank you.

    Post a hijackthis log, or scan your system with a virus scanner.

    I'm pretty sure Superantispyware will clean up that csrss prob

    dowload and update it's definitions and do a complete hdd scan

    probably clean up a few others you didn't know you had too!

    and as Speedy say's - do a HJT scan and post the log back here, and we'll see if there's anything else to take care of (do the superantispyware scan first)
