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.

reader: Casting to a reader or creating a new reader

I am a little bit confused by the following thing:

public randomConstructor(Reader r) {
this.bufferedreader = new BufferedReader(r);
}


It seem to be logical that if you want to use a BufferedReader you should create one and use the reader as a parameter. However, I saw something like that:

public randomConstructor(Reader r) {
this.bufferedreader = (BufferedReader) r;
}


Obivously it doesn't work if r isn't a BufferedReader itself.

dllhost.exe: generating dmp files from an inproc com dll running in dllhost.exe

I am writing an inproc com dll that runs in the dllhost.exe surrogate, but I see an issue debugging it.

in exe's that I've written, I have a top level exception handler that creates a .dmp file i can load in windbg and then crashes, and I'm unsure of how to do this from dllhost. Is there another way to generate stack dumps from dllhost.exe on a crash? i've seen this page (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910904), but it seems to involve the component services program. Is there some registr

pnkbstra.exe: Issue Launching Application's: Last 2 Line's of Script

So the problem is that i'm having an trouble getting the last 2 line's of my script to run through to the bottom successfully, i'm 95% confused on why it's bugging out right at the bottom.

Ideally i'd like both the app's to launch independently of one another. I can get subprocess.call to launch both the apps if i take all the launching portions/line's of the script out and put them in a new script and launch it while it's in the same directory as the file's that it's trying to launch.(Id

svchost.exe: Why is svchost.exe terminating my C# application?

For some reason, my C# application is being terminated by svchost.exe and I'm trying to understand why. It was terminating the application silently until I turned on Silent Process Exit logging using Gflags.exe from the Windows Debugging Tools. It happens infrequently on machines that I can't running debugging tools on (customer pcs).

The event doesn't really provide me with much info to go on. The termination code is 805306369=0x30000001, but I can't seem to find anything useful onlin

monitor.exe: WFP kernel-mode driver's DriverEntry getting called differently on some machines?

I've added some code to the Windows Filtering Platform MSNMNTR sample for my own application, but it still has the same structure. I've compiled the driver and the application for Win8 64-bit and production-signed the driver. On the (virtual) machine that I built the code on, the sample works fine and monitors correctly. When I copy the inf, sys and exe to another machine, the sample does NOT monitor. Through traceview output, I can see that on the second machine, DriverEntry() is not called, th

sync.exe: System.ArgumentNullException, P10 NIL and proper dmp fie locations?

iexplore.exe: Process.Start(“IExplore.exe”); <— Is this reliable?

Process.Start('IExplore.exe');

Does this always work, on every machine ? If not, how to do it properly ?

... EDIT: .................................

The problem with Process.Start('http://www.example.com/'); is that we have to target a local html file, with some querystring specifying which page to load in the html frameset.
So our URL looks like the following:

G:PathToHelpFolderindex.html#search?page=1.html


If you pass this path to Process.Start, an er

scrnsave.scr: Start a screensaver when explorer is not the shell

I'm running my own kiosk application as the shell (replacing HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/winlogon/shell).

The application needs to be able to turn off the monitor and I was using Process.Start('scrnsave.scr') to do this. It works on my dev machine but not when the shell is replaced.

It's clearly because the UseShellExecute is set to true, but when I set it to false I can't get the screensaver to run. Using explorer.exe as the command and scrnsave.scr as the argument just ca

winamp.exe: how to debug a dll winamp plugin in Visual Studio 2010 written in C++?

I'm developing a Winamp plugin. I have a project that builds a .dll file. This file is actually the plugin. I want to debug that plugin.
I need some recipe Step by step. I have already set the Configuration Properties - > Debug ging -> Command to 'C:Program Files (x86)Winampwinamp.exe'. So, when I hit debug winamp actually starts the plugin but then some C++ runtime fatal error occure.



EDIT:

The question is how to prepare for the debugging? How to tell winamp.exe
