I am hoping someone can help me with removing the cssrss.exe Trojan from my PC. I have windows XP home edition.
I was infected with the windows xp 2008 virus and finally was able to remove it all. However, I then find another Trojan called cssrss.exe, I have no idea if it is something different to the win xp2008 or if it is separate. I have ran scans, with AVG, Spybot search and destroy, windows defender, McAfee and Yahoo and still doesn't remove (Yahoo) or it doesn't get picked up by the others.
So I looked in the registry and did a search on all cssrss.exe and cssrss and deleted from there. The only problem is that it keeps saying it is in windows/system 32 but when I look there I cannot find the file to delete from my c drive (yes I also uncheck the boxes to show all hidden files). When I restart and do the same search it says it then located in windows/prefect, so I am able to find it and delete.
Again, on reboot I still find it running on my machine.
I am really at my end wits, no idea what else I can do to remove it. Can someone please help me?
