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

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?

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: 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.

services.exe: In windows programming, is there any way we can find out which module (Thread ID & DLL) is c…

I have made a sample application which will display all the process details which is running currently in my window smartphone device. such as NK.exe, filesys.exe etc.

I want to know how we can find out which module (Thread ID & DLL) is consuming CPU time? Most of the driver threads runs under device.exe / NK.exe and I am pretty sure that bulk of the CPU utilization will come from device.exe / NK.exe and Services.exe.

I want to know what are the threads running under device.exe

cli.exe: PHP exec on Windows Server 2008

I have installed PHP as a module in IIS on Windows Server 2008, am am having great difficulty trying to execute command-line programs from within a PHP script.

I can execute the PHP code fine using php-cgi.exe and php-cli.exe, which leads me to believe that it might be a permissions issue.

However, I can execute some commands, like shutdown.exe and dir.

I have tried the same process in an ASP.NET file and am having exactly the same problem.

Basically, I would like to

w3wp.exe: Is there a memory limit for w3wp.exe?

Is there a max memory size for w3wp.exe? Mine is getting up to about 2.5-3G then seems to crash/reset.

Per the 'GIVEN' dimensions below I setup some counters and noticed that the w3wp.exe will service http requests then reset to 0 along with the w3wp.exe process crashing (changing pids). As a result REQUESTS_QUEUED and ACTIVE_REQUESTS grow large causing delays in processing until the w3wp.exe can restart itself. It's doing this every 3-4min so more than likely due to heavy system volume

outlook.exe: Outlook.Exe Keeping Handle After Attachment Save VB

I have some VBA that i use to download all the attachments from an email and save them to a directory.

This is causing me some problems because the handle from Outlook is remaining on the folder and as a result it fails to delete correctly.

I thought my code is pretty fool proof and shouldn't be keeping a hold on the folder after the completion of the script.

Can someone please point out to me what I have done wrong :/

php.exe: php.exe script parameters in batch file

I'm trying to execute a PHP script on Windows through php.exe, while passing parameters to the script. Everywhere I look, it says it should work like this:

The -t 10 -i 5 should be passed to script.php, where I can access them through $argv. When I type this in on the command line, everything runs as expected. When I paste the very same line in a .cmd file, the part after script.php gets treated as a seperate command. (and yes, it is a

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
