    A little about that service:

    csrss - csrss.exe - Process Information
    Process File: csrss or csrss.exe
    Process Name: Client/Server Runtime Server Subsystem
    Description: The Windows Client Server Runtime Subsystem handles Windows and Graphics Functions for all Subsystems
    Common Errors: N/A
    System Process: Yes

    Csrss.exe
    You cannot end this process from Task Manager. This is the user-mode
    portion of the Win32 subsystem (with Win32.sys being the kernel-mode
    portion). Csrss stands for client/server run-time subsystem and is an
    essential subsystem that must be running at all times. Csrss is
    responsible for console windows, creating and/or deleting threads, and
    some parts of the 16-bit virtual MS-DOS environment.


    SCAN FOR VIRII.. doing a little searching it would appear that a virus could be the culprit..

    Try shutting off the IIS 6 and see if it goes back to normal. If so you may not be able to use IIS 6 on that particular machine with that OS.

    Are you running this server on a single chip unit or is this a multi-chip server?

    It is quite possible you'd need to upgrade to run the IIS 6 on the server and maintain usability of the OS at the same time.. not 100% sure and it depends on the server load I guess.

    At the very least consider a chip upgrade with hyperthreading capabilities.
