help me pls ?
around this few days , my pc is damn slow. So , i switch on my task manager .. guess what ? my cpu usage is 100%. . theres a thing by the name csrss.exe making my pc so damn slow.. anyone know how to terminate this file ? cause i cant end the process..pls help.. thx btw..
I think Spybot does remove Trojans, yes.
And run Ad-aware also just in case.
csrss.exe is part of the Microsoft client server software, which should not be removed.
To determine if csrss.exe is a legitimate file besides looking at the date modified is to right click on csrss.exe inside Task Manager and try to end the process.
if it is a legitimate file, you will get a message that csrss.exe is a critical system process and end it is not possible.
If you do not receive that message when trying to end the csrss.exe process, then it could be a virus.
your user profile might be corrupted, try to delete your user profile.
To delete your profile, you must be logged in with other account that has administrative power.
After you are logged in, right-click my computer, click properties, and then on the advanced tab, click settings under user profile. Select your profile and then click delete.

thx for your help .. yeah .. you're right ,flash .. when i try to end the process , it says that csrss.exe is a critical file and you cant end it .. i'll try deleting my the profile . *cheers*
becareful when deleting the user profile, you can lose your application settings, and also don't forget to back up all data in that user profile folder (my document, desktop, etc)
it's a good idea to run a complete virus search, and a complete anti-spyware seach. I'm partial to ad-aware för removing spywares, so you might want to try that. and if you don't have Anti-virus or a firewall, get them. even something simple and crude like the built-in firewall in XP is better than nothing. And AVG Anti-virus can be downloaded for free as a somewhat watered down version of their commercial version. It doesn't have all the functions of the one you buy, but it doe it's job.
how about control panel - add/remove programs and remove all that you aren't planning to use.
and then run registry cleaner...
it should help a bit too.
also try using Security Task Manager ... its way more powerful than the standard task manager and is good at killing things that infiltrate critical files
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

Ah well... Process Explorer is another good one, but it doesn't have that security rateing like SD's suggestion does. You can download it here:
