Hmm.....did you run the scan with MBAM? Does it ask you to reboot to clean the infection? Then reboot and let us know whether the infection comes back. Its not a pretty situation.

Csrss is a legit windows component, located in C:\windows\system32. Right click on the process in the task manager, then click on "Open file location", if its system32 theres nothing to worry about. I just checked, I also have 2 csrss processes in my task manager.

Is your computer behaving wierdly E.g. are you getting virus notifications from the AV or mbam, or are webpages being redirected or are their random popup windows? If not, chill.
