What is winstart.bat? Should I remove it?

winstart.bat is a batch file that contains a set of system commands, which can be used by a particular parasite to manipulate files, corrupt installed software, alter system configuration or launch other pest components. winstart.bat is actually a specific text file that acts in a similar way to a regular executable. However, it contains no malicious code, but only commands and therefore cannot run own processes.
The winstart.bat file is installed and used by worm Emmapeel PIF Worm. It is also related to other parasites such as worm IRC-Worm.Ceyda.6574, worm IRC-Worm.Ceyda.6953, worm IRC-Worm.Ceyda.6966, trojan BAT.Winstart and Memory Manager 2.6. These threats can use winstart.bat for different purposes, as the file’s functionality depends on a particular parasite it belongs to.
Sometimes a presence of winstart.bat does not indicate that your computer is infected. It can be an essential system file or a file installed by harmless legitimate software and therefore may not pose any threat to your privacy and the system. Although such cases are quite rare, you should thoroughly examine winstart.bat before completely deleting or leaving it in the system.
