By default it is located in the System (95/98/ME) / System32 (NT/2000/XP/Vista) folder under the Windows installation folder, C:\Windows or C:\WinNT.

The process is not visible and loads during the Windows boot process and when started, it connects to a remote IRC server waiting for instructions to be executed. Csrcs.exe is known to be associated with a number of other threats.

The attackers of this virus can access our computer and gain access to some important data remotely.

DISABLE AND REMOVE csrcs.exe IMMEDIATELY. This process is most likely a virus or trojan. It is highly recommended that you run a FREE performance scan to automatically optimize memory, CPU and Internet settings.
