    Both the csrss.exe and smss.exe files can be either legitimate Windows files or not. I have both processes running on a PC that I'm working on. The csrss.exe is in the \Windows\System32 folder and it's the only one. The smss.exe, I have in: \cmdcons\system32; \I386\SYSTEM32; \Windows\System32; and lastly, in \Windows\I386\SYSTEM32. I'm also showing one which shows up in blue (deleted?) in \Windows\System32\dllcache. Are there any of the "bad ones" in there somewhere? Thanks!
    RTG :cool:

    The machine with these files won't see the network. I don't know why some of the computers I work on will and some won't—but that's a major problem I need to address. If a computer has been hijacked—especially in an adult content way—I have no way of knowing. I can run a HiJack log from CD which the computer sees as a temporary folder; it will gather information but I think I would have to manually go in and edit the changes or deletions. I've had other problems with this PC and I'm sure you'll notice right away that I've got work ahead of me... In case it's helpful, here is the HiJack log of that computer:
