    Csrss.exe is part of windows, and is not a virus/spyware. It might get infected but, it in itself is not harmful.

    Can you tell me how to find out?

    So if it's not that then can you tell me how I might find out what is wrong with my computer? I ran McAfee and it didn't find anything but my computer keeps freezing and a lot of the things are not working right like my printer. I know I got something I just don't know how to find out what? Thanks so much for the help. :wave:
