CSRSS Removal Tool 1.0
This is also the case of CSRSS Removal Tool, which aims at removing the CSRSS virus, an infection that manifests through the display of pop-ups and error messages.
The mischievous file can be confused with a legitimate Windows process (csrss.exe) that belongs to the Client/Server Run-Time Subsystem and needs to run at all times and, therefore, should remain untouched.
However, the legitimate process runs from C:\Windows\System32, while the pesky threat resides in a different location.
Working with the application
As soon as started, CSRSS Removal Tool proceeds to downloading any updates available in the developer’s server and which should integrate all the cleaning routines to get rid of the malicious data and traces leaving a clean system.
According to the developer, during the scan operation the utility tracks down the tracks in Windows Registry as well as the malicious paths and presents them to the user. These can be easily eliminated from the computer without any effort from the user.
Scanning the computer is not a resource intensive procedure but on less powerful machines the process could have a negative impact on performance.
Features at a glance
The feature list also boasts that apart from removing the threat and its traces the application can also immunize the system so that the risk of getting infected again with this type of malware decreases drastically.
Besides scanning the computer in search of the CSRSS threat the removal tool provides the possibility to restore the configuration of some of the web browser to default.
If you experience the CSRSS infection symptoms CSRSS Removal Tool can come in handy, although modern security products should be on top of things. However, take into consideration that the tool attempts to push third-party software onto the system.
