Csrss.exe - I looked at this in my task manager, but I cannot click right and find its properties, everything else is fine and all have 'user name' But not this one. I found several copies in other folders but none in system 32 where it is supposed to be. The ones in the other folders all have signatures, but I cannot find this one mentioned in task manager anywhere? Any ideas what the heck is happening?

    Why are you asking this query. Is your system malfunctioning. Csrss stands for client/ server run- time subsystem, while it is an essential subsystem that must be running at all times. It is responsible for console windows/ creating dos environment. This is resides in system 32 folder. Don't play with any system files/ folders, else your system may be stopped/ damaged all of a sudden.

    As Subhendu Sen said, this is a core component of the Windows OS. Are you having any particular issues?
