How can I remove this file? I tried deleting it but it seems to keep taking up my CPU. I learned from google that if I have this file somewhere else than C:\WINDOWS\System32, it is usually a Trojan. I found one in the legit location, and one in C:\WINDOWS\I386 named CSRSS.EX_ unlike the legit csrss.exe. What are the proper removal instructions of this virus?

Helloo Beremat, One is good and one is bad. It's a pretty old bug so let's see if running these 2 scans will fix it right away.

AVG moved some files into the Virus Vault from the Generic2 Trojan, but the lag still exists. I will try the SuperAntiSpyware program now.

*edit*

:D

The SUPERAntiSpyware program found some keyloggers which I think that were the reason 100% of my CPU was being taken up. Everything is back to normal. You guys are really good at helping- my quickest response to a problem like this ever.

Those 2 programs are also nice additions to my security box :thumbsup:

Next
Create a new Restore Point:
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
Then when Restore opens, select Create a new restore point and click Next
Give the the restore point a name like New and clean >Click Create

Then delete old Restore points:
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup > Click Ok.
