Title: two instances of csrss.exe
Post by: AnnaJohansen on October 31, 2016, 10:44:32 pm
Hi. i need som advice.

I have two csrss exe files in two different places on my computer. one in this folder:
C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-csrss_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.14393.0_none_86584f52fac852b3

and the other in system 32.
gmer detects one of them as rootkit/malware. but none of my other virusprograms finds anything. can i trust gmer and how will i know for sure if this is a problem?

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\cryptpko.cryptpko1
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\cryptsig.cryptsig1

THEY ARE IN EVERY CATEGORY OF THE REGISTRY

i read that this is dangerous registrykeys and wonder if it is so

Hi Anna,

For clarifications, I've merged your two topics into this one.

There may be multiple running instances of the same process.
Please post GMER report in your next reply.

These keys are linked to the Crypto PKO and Crypto Sign extensions (CryptExt.dll by Microsoft).
You don't have to worry about them.

Regards.
