Standard Windows component. Starts when the computer starts. Allow it so long as the properties say it's Microsoft's.

Am I in deep dodo because I allowed acess to CSRSS.exe ?
I think I should have waited for more replys to my question. If this gets me into trouble is their a way where I can disallow acess?

Click on Zone Alarm. Select Programs in left part of the screen. Select program tab there is a list of all allowed programs and an option to delete 1.

Arrrggghhh! :thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet:

CSRRS.exe looks like trouble, CSRSS.EXE is legit.
Please download SuperAntiSpyware, and run a scan to clean it out.

Take the second selection - FREE

As far as Zone Alarm - yes you can delete it from the Programs list. But what's better is to put red checkmarks all across the board.

Oh, and I'm so sorry for missing the difference. I hope the worm had no time to cause too much trouble.
