    csrss.exe is also process which is registered as the W32.Netsky.AB@mm worm, the W32.Webus Trojan, Win32.Ladex.a and more

    I'm not really sure what that means. does it mean that it could be a virus?

    Read what I said again! Where is the process running from? That is the most important thing. All NT based systems have a valid csrss.exe process.

    Many sites like that are just pointing out what the file may or may not represent. They do not always tell you the more specific info (like if it is running from and if it is such and such size blah blah blah). They want you to buy what they are selling. In fact there are many less reputable sites that will come right out and say it is malware which is not correct in the majority of the cases. You need to know where the process is located and running from and you need to know something about which processes are part of Windows and or other valid applications and where they should normally be located.
