I can't be sure but it sounds like a virus.. csrss.exe often masks a serious virus. It is in fact normally a legit Microsoft program .. part of the OS. but a virus will mask itself as that file.. causing memory leaks.. if your standard virus checker won't find it.. download "unhackme" (google it).. it is a 'rootkit' killer..

Unhackme.. get's the virus (ALL virus's) out BEFORE Windows loads.. but be carefull .. it needs to be trained as it can't tell between a legit file and a dud.. just follow the simple instructions and if in doubt "get it out'!

Gaurenteed fix though and your machine will run faster too!

More than 1 csrss.exe


Start a command-line prompt (Windows-Key-plus-R-key).
Enter 'CD \' and press ENTER.
Enter 'DIR /S /A /P CSRSS.EXE*' and press ENTER.
You could have a computer-virus (in some folder "other" than WINDOWS\SYSTEM32) that has the same filename.

Csrss.exe


Not a lot of information to go by, but it looks like you have a trojan virus.
There should only be one copy of csrss.exe running per user logged into the system.

I've attached a possible solution, but I recommend you get a full virus scan by removing the hard drive and attaching it to another system that has the scanning software installed.

Windows 7 will not see my propel a767. worke fine


Undoubtably. I don't think you are going to have much joy Win 7 doesn't play well with the USB layer, and old drivers... You could try, installing in Admin mode,set compatability for XP SP2, & run all/any .exe as Admin too.

Reset secure clock


Cause and Solution to Secure Clock Error

First thing you need to do is open up your task manager by clicking control alt delete.

Select the tab "processes." In the process tab you will see a list of programs that are currently running, if you locate a file called csrss.exe it could be a trojan virus that is blocking your subscription music from communicating with your computer properly. It also effects a lot other things including hardware, personal information, security, etc. but for this post we will keep it specificly on the secure clock error. This csrss.exe trojan/virus causes your computer's internal system to not function correctly including the secure clock.

NOW WAIT! There are two different csrss.exe files, a good one and a bad/trojan one. All windows computers have a csrss.exe file on them and this "good" csrss.exe file is need in order for your computer to run propertly so don't do anything with it until you determine if you have the "good" one or the "bad" one.

You must first determine whether the csrss.exe file that is running on your computer is the "good" one that ships with the computer (inside your systems32 folder) or whether you have the trojan/virus csrss.exe file infecting your computer and secure clock.

Since the systems32 program and the Trojan/virus are both name csrss.exe you must run a quick test to see if you have the bad one or the good one or both.

First locate all fo the csrss.exe files inside your "processes" tab inside task manager (you may have more then one). The way to tell if you have the trojan or "bad" csrss.exe is by right clicking on it and selecting "end task." If you have the "good" one then you should get a windows pop up message. If you you get the windows pop up message, do NOT "end" the task, just ex out or cancel out of it. You do not want to end the "good" csrss.exe file because it is needed in order for your computer to work properly. If you "end task" on the good csrss.exe file then your computer will instantly crash (since it is needed to run).

If when you right click on the csrss.exe file and select "end task" you do NOT get a windows pop up then you may very likely have the csrss.exe trojan virus. In addition to the right click test you may want to simply look at where this file is located. If it is in your systems folder it is the good one, if it is anywhere else it is propably the bad one.

The trojan/virsu version of this csrss.exe file interferes with many of the communication hardware,drivers, software, security, etc., including rhapsody and will prompt this secure clock error message.

The only way to remove this csrss.exe trojan is to perform a system recovery on your computer returning your computer back to the original manufacturers settings. There is no way to clean, delete or remove this file trojan, you must perform a complete clean of your system by doing a system recover.

If you cannont determine whether your csrss.exe file are good one or bad ones simply back up your files and software and do a system recovery anyway, your rhapsody and mp3 player will then work fine.

Windows Startup Error csrss.exe


Okay, we are going to try two things. If the first don't work go to the second.

1) First perform a search on your computer for the 'csrss.exe' file. If found, copy it and then paste it into your C:\windows\system32 folder.
That should do it.

2) If that don't do it or your search can't find it, then perform the following;

To scan and verify the versions of all the system files that Windows File Protection protects, use the System File Checker (Sfc.exe) tool together with the /scannow parameter. If the SFC.exe tool detects that such a file was overwritten, the SFC.exe tool retrieves the correct version of the file from the Dllcache folder or from the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

To run SFC, please follow these steps:

1. Click on Start > Run command prompt
2. Type SFC /scannow, and then press ENTER

Note: You may be asked for inset OS CD.


3. After finishing SFC, you may run CHKDSK C: /R in the Run command prompt as well.
