So i duess my spybot deleted csrss.exe
because now when i start up my com,
these errors pop up about csrss.

I'm not that good with computers
so i have no clue what to do.
help me...

I've found a registry mechanic support software
which might fix it
but i need to pay to use the full version
which will fix the problems.
If i just use the trial version,
my only option is to delete the problem areas
and i'm not sure that's a good thing.

Is it safe to just continue with the software and delete?
Do u guys know any other software that does the cleanup too
but can fix as well... and is free?

Thanks!!

Spybot normally keeps a record file prior to fixing/deteting. I have happily never had to look for it but it may be in the sub folders of Spybot in Program Files. Worth a look.

In fact I was wrong above. Open Spybot and press the 'Recovery 'red cross' 'you are then shown a screen with the previous thirty days deletions. Unless you clicked on the purge tab and then OK (unlikely) you can revert.

What is the location of this csrss.exe file? Depending on where it is located - it could be a virus that's working on your system.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

If your computer still works, I suspect that you did not delete the "official" csrss.exe file. There are also viruses with that name. If you still have it in the C:\Windows\System32 folder, you're probably OK. You may also see it in the dll cache. If it's somewhere else, it's bad. There are several mass-mailing worms with that name. It is doubtful that Spybot would delete the real csrss file.
