Windows 7: Virus/winlogon/csrss

15 Nov 2010   #1

win 7 pro

I recently did a full scan in safe mode with the latest version of avira (free) and it popped up with a myriad of trojans etc.

After that i ran CCleaner and followed the reccomendations after finding reg conflicts.

My question now is that I have winlogon.exe, csrss.exe and nvvsvc.exe running but in the description part they are all blank and from what i've read it should state that they are microsoft processes?

If i need to do some sort of scan so you can see what processes, application etc is running please direct me and i will do anything to get my computer working correctly again.

Windows 7 & Windows Vista Ultimate

Hi, spartakunt. Welcome to Seven Forums.

If you are referring to Processes in Task Manager, the description is blank. That is normal. Have you run a full system scan in Normal Mode with an updated Avira? I suggest doing that, followed by an anti-malware scan with either Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or SuperAntispyware.
