Default csrss.exe removal

I need help removing a csrss.exe trojan off my computer. I found out i had been hacked by calling yahoo help because of my email account passwords were not working. They took control of my pc & showed me all of the viruses & stuff on my computer. They wanted to charge like 300 to fix it.

Anyway here's my hijackthis...........

Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1
Scan saved at 4:04:34 PM, on 4/24/2012

Default Re: csrss.exe removal

If csrss.exe is running from the C:\windows\system32 folder then it is a normal and required Windows process. If it were running from anywhere else, it would be a problem.

If you want to know if your PC is infected, a hijackthis log is of very little use to us and the only things of concern seen by your log is that you do not have any protection software installed and you are running a version of HijackThis that has not been used for about 7 years.

Please follow the instructions in the below link if you want us to properly check your PC for malware and remove it for free if any exists:
