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

IMAGE_NAME: csrss.exe

EDIT: Thanks already for the good answers, but I actually don't need help concerning my service, I just would like to get some basic understanding of what the purpose of this service is.

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?

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: 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: 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.

googleearth.exe: KML to control Optional Features (such as “Tour Guide”)

I'm new to KML programming but have gotten most of what I need to do working, which is multiple map overlays.

One thing I want to control but haven't found a way to do so are the options you can turn on/off via 'View' on the GoogleEarth.exe menu.

For instance, if I run Google Earth stand alone, turn on 'Tour Guide' (View > Tour Guide), then terminate Google Earth, when I start up my application that interacts with Google Earth, the Tour Guide photo strip is on. If I exit my app,

mysqld-nt.exe: What's the difference between IN and INNER JOIN in my case?

In my MySQL database, table events has a composite index with columns closingeventid, timeStart and eventCode. There are more than 21 million rows in table events.

Here is two SQLs, if I run the first one in MySQL command line, the Mem Usage of process mysqld-nt.exe increases gradually with 10 M per second, it goes up around 1.6 G then plummets to around 30 M. Then the command line returns a Out of Memory exception.

But, it's ok if I use the second SQL, with INNER JOIN instead of

tcm.exe: Getting the test run ID after launching a test via tcm

I have a PowerShell script to kick off an automated test run using command-line interface (tcm.exe) for Microsoft Test Manager.

I also then have a cleanup Powershell script associated with the test run (in the .testsettings file), which exports the test result (tcm.exe run /export), but my problem is that I need the test run ID. It is output from the 'tcm.exe run /create' command, but it's of no use because first of all, it outputs as 'Run created with ID: 501', and second of all because

werfault.exe: How to troubleshoot Java crashes on Windows 8 system with Werfault.exe

I'm trying to troubleshoot my application that seems to crash in production with no Java level logging.

I can tell when my application is about to crash because the UI becomes unresponsive, and in the background java.exe spawns werfault.exe.

Then I get the 'Java.exe has stopped working ... ' message.

I have a dump file, but I'm not sure how to analyze it. Java console messages indicates the application is happy and healthy up until boom, nothing, and the app hard-crashes.

reader: Blackberry smartcard reader example

I am writing an app for BlackBerry that utilizes a BlackBerry smartcard reader. There is not much documentation on the subject, so I'd really like if someone could give me starting examples.

Basically, there is one RSA private key on the card plus a certificate (for paired public key). I would like to be able to encrypt/decrypt data and also sign it as well. The final goal would be to establish an mutual-authenticated SSL connection using client certificate contained on the smartcard.

werfault.exe: kill processes one by one using .bat

I want to kill process 'example.exe' one by one or two at a time to eventually get 0 'example.exe' processes
and loop check if there's any 'example.exe' processes every minute , if there is - terminate them/it.
Right now I'm using this

:TASKKILL
TASKKILL /F /IM WerFault.exe
ping 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 120000
goto :TASKKILL


but this just kills them all at the same time which is no good to me .
