    What is file: {A6D608F0-0BDE-491A-97AE-5C4B05D86E01}.bat


      Hello, I apologise if this question is in wrong category, if you know the right category, please remove it to the right one. I have a question about a certain file: {A6D608F0-0BDE-491A-97AE-5C4B05D86E01}.bat, 2 days ago antivirus put this file in virus cage, and identified it as a threat. File is located in system32 folder, I can delete it, but every time I turn on pc that file reappears. When I open it with notepad it says this:


      @echo off

      if exist igfxEM.exe start igfxEM.exe

      if exist igfxHK.exe start igfxHK.exe

      if exist igfxTray.exe start igfxTray.exe

      del /Q {A6D608F0-0BDE-491A-97AE-5C4B05D86E01}.bat


      size is 180 bytes.

      After that first time antivirus put it in virus cage/chest (dont know correct term), i re-run scans and it says that the system is clean, and file itself, I ran Malwarebytes anti malware scan (clean), malwarebytes anti rootkit (clean), eset online scanner (clean), hitman pro (clean).

      I dont know what to do, is this file safe or not? I m asking this here because those igfxEM.exe, igfxHK.exe and igfxTray.exe files appear to be part of Intel software, can anyone clarify this to me, is this normal behaviour or a problem?

      Thank you.



      I m using Hp laptop 470 G2, i5 5200U, Amd R5 M255, 4GB of ram. Windows 8.1 - 64 bit
