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.

msnmsgr.exe: VB6 Read All Values Under Registry Key

In Visual Basic 6, how can I get all the values of keys under, for example:

Which would return the following values (depending on user):

'C:Program
FilesSkypePhoneSkype.exe' /nosplash
/minimized

'C:Program FilesWindows

Etc...

conhost.exe: Why is conhost.exe being launched?

I'm launching a Java process ('java.exe') from .Net. using Process.Start(). In addition to the Java process, another process called conhost.exe is launched somehow. I am redirecting the output from the Java process to the .Net process.


Why is conhost.exe even launched?
How do I track it from .Net? I want to track this specific instance, and since I'm not creating it directly (but rather the Java.exe process), I don't have it's PID.

snmp.exe: SNMP Extension Agent on Windows Server 2012 unable to connect to a port from which it needs …

New Update:
So on the Windows Server 2012, if I manually invoke snmp.exe from WindowsSystem32 to 'Run as Administrator', the problem goes away. I am not able to force the SNMP Service to start as Administrator on Windows Server 2012.

Here is my scenario:


Our SNMP Extension Agent creates a windows socket to connect with one of our
Agents on a specific port number to get some configuration
information which we propagate to the MIB Browser.

dllhost.exe: PrintTicket DllHost.exe Memory Climbs

I'm using PrintTickets to print a large number of WPF objects and things are printing fine. We do have a situation that has been reported where the program is using a ton of the dllhost.exe memory and climbs until the machine eventually crashes. I've narrowed it down to creating a PrintTicket and the printqueue.getprintcapabilitiesasxml(). Each time these are called it jumps the memory usage of the dllhost.exe each time by sometimes 3+ MB. Can anyone tell me either how to avoid this if possible

dllhost.exe: debugging an inproc com server running in dllhost.exe

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

if there were multiple dllhost.exe's running at once, it would be annoying to find the right one to attach a debugger to. Is there an easy way to identify yours if a lot are running?

Thanks

dw20.exe: What is the correct way for a program to terminate its own process (Windows)

C# .NET 3.5

I have a console application that is being called by another application on the computer. This console app runs continuously, and listens for data on stdin from the 'parent' process.

However, when the parent is stopped or killed, the console app that it started continues. Under normal circumstances, it sits and idles waiting for input from stdin, using minimal resources. However, as soon as the parent goes away, this console app spikes the CPU and starves the core

defrag.exe: what the best and simplest way to find out whether a volume need defrag?

I am writing a application that monitor the system's health, user should know when they need to defrag the volumes.

What I am thinking is calling the 'defrag.exe /A' then analyze the output result to see whether it contains 'You do not need to defragment this volume.'

But it's slow and very bad, I fount that the 'Analyze' is really quick on the MyDefrag.exe.

Anyone could tell me what's the best and simplest way?
