csrss.exe problem

April 19, 2009 at 03:34:59
Specs: Windows XP
When I start up my pc I get a pop-up box which says "The e-mail server is currently unavailable. Please try again later." The box just has an OK button. This box is coming from the csrss.exe process. Anyone know what this is about?!

To find out what each Startup(or Process) item
does or means, and any recommendation as to if you should close the process:
http://www.answersthatwork.com/Task...
Task List Programs
OR
http://www.processlibrary.com/
The Process Library

If Task Manager show has 2 csrss.exe showing,
then one of them is some sort of Malware.

Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.

Hi thanks for the replies. There is only one csrss.exe process running, still not sure what is causing this, can't find any other reference similar to this on the web!

I have AVAST. Every few minutes the email scanner icon appears in my system tray for a second or two. Although it doesn't appear that any emails have actually been scanned when I check. I only use internet based email so I'm really confused!

I am getting the same message on 2 windows machines.
One is a desktop Vista Ultimate. The other is a laptop XP
SP3. Only when off line. Every 10 minutes or so. VERY
ANNOYING. No viruses. I have AVG on both machines. No
message when online.

I found that it was a web email account I have trying to check for emails, nothing to worry about in my case. I have a quick login program for the email account in question, think it was a setting in there.

I used Packet Analyzer 6.3 to check what was causing the message.
