Csrss.exe, What It Is And How To Fix It

Jun 25, 2008
Csrss.exe is the main executable process which manages almost all of the graphical commands in the Windows operating system, Microsoft Client Server Runtime Server Subsystem. This program is needed for the stability of your system and the security of the operation of your system. This process should never be terminated or your system could become unstable. For essential programs and applications to work correctly, Csrss.exe must be able to run, so experts agree that you should never end this legitimate program.

The problem with Csrss.exe is that it is possible for an electronic infection to use the same name and executable as this essential program. Many malicious programs, such as viruses, worms, and Trojans, will use the names of files which are normally found on your computer, making it harder to detect these electronic infections and making removal nerve wracking for most users. People who create computer viruses hope that by naming it after an important file needed by the system, users will not remove the infection because of the fear of doing damage to their computer.

Ways To Repair Csrss.exe Errors

Installing a quality anti virus program can help prevent many errors on your computer screen, by preventing infection before it can start on your system and removing harmful programs. Because many malicious programs try to hide under legitimate file names, sometimes the anti virus software will not catch or remove this file, because of damage that may be done to the operating system if the Csrss.exe file is not a fake containing an electronic infection.

There is an easy way to guarantee that the Csrss.exe file on your system is the real deal. Open Windows Task Manager, and make an attempt to end this process. If the file is legitimate you will receive a warning prompt telling you that this system process is a critical one, and it is not possible to end this process. If this prompt does not appear then the file is not a valid Csrss.exe file.

The best way to eliminate Csrss.exe errors is to use a registry cleaner. A registry cleaner is a software program that can automatically clean the Windows Registry on your system. When programs and files are removed or uninstalled, the removal is not always complete, and file fragments may be left in your registry. Over time these fragments can build up in the registry, causing slow computer speed and performance, a well as Csrss.exe errors.

It is not feasible to manually edit the Windows Registry, because this process would take days, or even longer. There is also the security issue of removing files needed by your system, which can cause damage to your computer, and may ruin it. Registry cleaner software is the best and easiest way to clean your computer and fix errors. These programs know which files are used by the system and which files are just junk, so a lot of the risks of removing the wrong file are minimized with registry cleaners.
