Windows 7: Unravelling CSRSS.exe and the new process architecture of Windows 7

08 Dec 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Before when I would right click PnkBstrA.exe and hit Go To Process, it took me to CSRSS.exe and highlighted it. I probably misinterpreted what that means. Now since new OS and install it is no longer doing that. I really hate when things don't show in the Process tab however, it's such a drag to have to memorize every single service just to help identify potential malware, but I guess I need to start learning them.
