Might also look for other files with .bat extension. View contents of each with notepad.

Sed and Grep are unix/posix commands. They could be part of a MS install if someone uses SFU or other such.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Windows XP doesn't use autoexec.bat & config.sys for that matter because there is no DOS in XP These two files were used to operate & control DOS.

Try the usual scans ---
Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.
