C:\WINDOWS\System32\wuauclt.exe is a valid windows process. It is Windows Update AutoUpdate Client. There are malware by that name, but the malware would normally not be in the C:\WINDOWS\System32 folder.

csrss.exe is also a valid windows file. It's the main component of the Client/Server Runtime Server Subsystem.

If you did really mean crss.exe, then this could be a number of different malware, but I see no indication of any malware running in you HJT log.

Are you having any specific problems?

For your peace of mind you can go to the Jotti's malware scan site and submit these files for analysis. Jotti runs them through a number of different AV programs and reports the results.

edit:
I just now noticed that you still have an active thread open with Grinler. Generally we requests you stay in one thread with the same HJT Team member. Grinler should be getting back to you soon in that thread about your 'DSO Exploit' question and I suspect giving you an all-clear.
