If you now Google for "csrss.exe Backdoor.Bot" you find plenty of info, including suggestions to use MalwareBytes as vjones suggested – Jan Doggen Apr 16 '13 at 20:17

That looks like some Malware trying to install itself on your computer. It doesn't look like it has actually been installed yet - the screen shot you posted shows it trying to run from a particular url.

Have you completely closed any browsers you have running? If so (and you still have that message) the next step is probably to run something like Malware Bytes (you can use the free version) to see if you've got some kind of malware infection - there could be another piece of malware that did get installed that is trying to install this second program.
