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.

msdtc.exe: When machine-wide tracing is enabled, where does ODBC store logs for NETWORKSERVICE?

When I enable machine-wide tracing in odbcad32.exe, it says:


A log file will be created if none exists for every user identity under which a process using odbc is running.


However, it doesn't say where they'll be created. Presumably for normal users they'll be under %LOCALAPPDATA%, since that's the default path, but what about system users like NETWORKSERVICE, which the MS Distributed Transaction Services (msdtc.exe)?

It's using ODBC - I have a debugger attached to

I stop the VB Script, stop the services, and uninstall the services so they no longer appear in the Services panel (services.msc). Unfortunately, WMI (wmiprvse.exe) still has a handle on the service .exe files. I ca

smc.exe: Executing VBS Code in VBA with admin rights

how are you doing?

I want to execute VBS code in a VBA environment, in this case I am working in the VB editor in MS Excel 2010. Sadly I have no idea how to convert the VBS code so VBA is able to execute it.
