csrss.exe

Is it possible to get the “Image Path Name” of csrss.exe which is a SYSTEM process?

The windows system process (in Windows 7 for this example) 'csrss.exe' runs as a SYSTEM process and when I go to get (programmatically, of course) the process list with pid, command line, and image path name I get no values for command line or image path name because Windows won't let you grab that information for a SYSTEM process (I believe).

Is there a way I can grab image path name from a SYSTEM process? Does Windows actually prevent you from doing this? Is there a workaround?

Update: calling ReadProcessMemory() function

csrss.exe: Hunting down application errors coming from csrss.exe

I'm the maintainer of a legacy Delphi application. On machines running this program an Application Error appears sometimes with the caption referring to this Delphi app and a message like the following:


The instruction at '...' referenced memory at '...'. The memory could not be 'read'.

Click on OK to terminate the program.


Task Manager says the process belonging to this message box is csrss.exe. What would be a systematic way to find the root cause of this e

csrss.exe: batch or vbs forced BSOD

Is there a way is batch or vbs to force the blue screen of death to appear, or a forced crash. This can happen from stopping the process 'csrss.exe' but it wont close via simple batch or vbs script. How can this be done?

csrss.exe: Is there a way to inject behavior to csrss.exe and modify/enhance windows console?

I'm aware of Console2 and similar solutions, but I would really like to enhance every console window in my system. Any ideas?

csrss.exe: make a windows 7 machine crash on BSOD

I'm trying to write a windows debug utility and I would need to automatically crash a Windows machine and make a Blue Screen Of Death appear.

I can obviously kill the csrss.exe process from the task manager, but the command TASKKILL /F /IM csrss.exe in a .bat file doesn't work.

Is there another way to make a Windows machine crash on bsod? Maybe some external library able to kill any process.

I would prefer to use a command line approach since I'm more familiar with it.

csrss.exe: What does the csrss.exe process do?

What is the purpose of the csrss.exe (Client/Server Runtime Server Subsystem) on Windows?

Maybe someone could give a good explanation or pointers to documentation? Unfortunately Google results are pretty noisy when searching a core process of Windows.

The reason I'm asking is that I got a BSOD from my service application which seems to be related to the csrss.exe process, at least this is what the analysis of the memory dump shows:

PROCESS_OBJECT: 85eeeb70

csrss.exe: is ??c:windows path legitimate

I am going to check loading and memory path of process to find malicious processes. for example if csrss.exe is executaed from other path than windows/system32 would be considered malicious. But the result of volatility for common process such as csrss.exe is as follow:

loading path : ??C:WINDOWSsystem32csrss.exe

mapped path : WINDOWSsystem32csrss.exe

or for sms.exe I have

loading path : SystemRootSystem32smss.exe

mapped path : WINDOWSsystem32smss.

ntvdm.exe: VDMEnumProcessWOW returns no processes on Vista

I'm trying to use VDMEnumProcessWOW to find all 16 bit host processes on Vista. I call it, and it appears to not find any results even though I do have a 16 bit app running.

I've also tried calling VDMEnumTaskWOWEx with the process id I got for ntvdm.exe from Windows Task Manager, and that also returns no results.

ntvdm.exe has user name joeBlogs, and the application I've written to call VDMEnumProcessWOW is running as a service under the SYSTEM account. Is the problem that I need

But I'm getting 'The current directory is invalid' error. What is the correct way to run iexplore via bat file invisibly ?

regedit.exe: How to detect Java is installed via REGEDIT.exe from a batch file?

I am looking for a batch file snippet that somehow reads the Windows registry and detects which Java JDK is on a Windows system and then asks the user which one they want to use and remembers the choice.

Here is what I have so far... needs some modifications. This script only finds the first JDK... it doesn't handle multiples.

@echo off
SETLOCAL EnableDelayedExpansion

start /w regedit /e reg1.txt 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREJavaSoftJava Development Kit'

wuauclt.exe: Windows Update Check with vbscript

has someone a script/or can help me to check, is there a windows update for a server available?

So i will get a mail when the yellow update icon is in the taskbar.

My idea is: Send a mail, if the wuauclt.exe longer than 10 minutes in the taskbar.

But i have no idea to make this.

I found only this:

Dim strComputer, strProcess
Do
strProcess = inputbox( 'Please enter the name of the process (for instance: explorer.exe)', 'Input' )
Loop until strProcess

regedit.exe: Why does registryKey.GetValue still read the old value after I changed the rgistry with rege…

So I access the registry value with this code:

Dim dm2 As RegistryKey
Dim dm2Value As String = 0

dm2 = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey('SoftwareLibralexDM')
If dm2 IsNot Nothing Then
dm2Value = DirectCast(dm2.GetValue('DM2'), String)
End If


Originally I had '1' stored as the value under DM2, and it worked fine :) So then I closed the program and changed the value of DM2 to '2' with regedit.exe, but I kept getting '1' from dm2.getValue :( I thought maybe

rundll32.exe: Rundll32.exe javascript

I've just (August 2014) seen a report of a program that uses the command line

rundll32.exe javascript:'..mshtml,RunHTMLApplication'


How does that work? I thought the first parameter was supposed to be the name of a DLL (mshtml), but how does rundll32 parse that command line?

javaw.exe: javaw.exe not displaying error on failure

OK, I thought this would be a common question, but I can't find much about it.

Suppose I run this command line in Windows:

javaw.exe -jar test.jar


and exception (ClassNotFoundException) occurs in main() method. Now, Oracle documentation states that
the javaw launcher will, however, display a dialog box with error information if a launch fails for some reason. However, there is nothing displayed in this case, javaw just silently dies, leaving you with no clue. To put i

This is a followup to SSE2 Compiler Error

This is the real bug I experienced before and have reproduced below by changing the _mm_malloc statement as Michael Burr suggested:
