windows cannot find file csrcs.exe


File csrcs.exe is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32.
Program has no file description. The file is not a Windows system file. The application is loaded during the Windows boot process.
The program is not visible. It is an unknown file in the Windows folder. Program listens for or sends data on open ports to LAN or Internet. csrcs.exe is able to monitor applications, hide itself, record inputs, manipulate other programs. Therefore the technical security rating is 86% dangerous.
It simply means, "It is very dangerous"

Try these steps to remove it.

Click on START-RUN,
type regedit (it will open the registry editor)
Press Ctrl+F
type "csrcs" (without quotes) and click on Search It'll show you some results, where you'll find "csrcs.exe" delete it immediately.

Again do the same search you may see "explorer.exe csrcs.exe" , right click then modify and remove the csrcs.exe part (leave the explorer.exe as it is)

Hurray !!! you have removed csrcs.exe
Restart your system and see it for yourself
