I have not long installed 'Kazaa FasterDownload', and have been fairly pleased with the results of using it.
However, I have had ZoneAlarm pop up a few times since installing it, saying a file 'csrss.exe' wants to connect to the Internet. I have ignored it for a few days, and then decided to try and find something out about it on the net.
I found out that the file 'csrss.exe' in a lot of cases is due to a virus – this got me panicking a bit. I then checked out the file with McAfee VirusScan, and it checked out OK. I decided to check out where the file was trying to connect to using ‘Sygate Personal Firewall’ (because it lets you back-trace and find out details about the address it’s trying to connect to). I didn’t need to back-trace because Sygate brought up the following info when the file tried to connect to the net:
‘C:\WINDOWS\csrss.exe is trying to connect to www.jajsoft.com [184.108.40.206]’.
I looked up the site ‘www.jajsoft.com’, and guess what product it was advertising?! Yes that’s correct: 'Kazaa FasterDownload'.
I then used ‘ad-aware 6’ to see if it was spyware, but it didn’t show anything.
So now I’m a bit stumped!
The file 'csrss.exe' definitely wasn’t trying to connect to the net before I installed 'Kazaa FasterDownload', and the file is trying to connect to a site that is advertising 'Kazaa FasterDownload'. However, the 'csrss.exe' file is supposedly not a virus nor spyware, so what is it?
If anyone knows what it’s doing, or if you have similar problems, please let me know.
