    The following information describes the files associated with each subsystem in Windows NT and the files associated with the virtual MS-DOS machine (VDM) and the Windows on Windows (WOW) environment.
    WIN32 Subsystem
    CSRSS.EXE - Main component of Win32 subsystem.
    KERNEL32.DLL - *
    GDI32.DLL - *
    USER32.DLL - *


    wowexec........http://personal.cfw.com/~tkprit/page/memopt.html


    monwow.exe is CSINJECT.EXE Norton Cleansweep Startup. This is only required if using the Cleansweep Install Monitor

    actually both have something to do w/ Norton... read the URL
