Step 1: Killing the processes

* Open Task Manager and kill "csrss.exe" first, To avoid killing the wrong csrss.exe process, look at the "User Name" column which lists who has started the process. If it is "SYSTEM" or "NT AUTHORITY" or the likes, then it means it is the legit windows process started by Windows itself and shouldn't be killed. If it is your username/computername then it means the csrss.exe process has started up as a normal user program and thus is not legit and the fake one. This is the one you need to kill...

* While still in Process Explorer, kill "block-checker.exe" if it is still there...

Step 2: Removing the files

 * Uninstall the block checker by going to "Add/Remove Programs" in the control panel.

* Go into "C:\Program Files" and delete the folder labelled "Block Checker" (where C:\ is the drive you installed Windows on) if it is still there.

* Delete the "exclusion_AOL.ini", "exclusion_MSN.ini" and "exclusion_Yahoo.ini" files located in windows' system folder (C:\Windows\System).

* Clean out your recycle bin to totally remove the files from your HDD.

Step 3: Fixing the registry

* Open your registry editor (Start > Run > regedit.exe) and navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" and delete the key named "block-checker".
