Even if it was a virus, the most it can do is affect your Wine files of
the pseudo-Windows installation. Even so, I'm not sure it will be much
effective. Even if it wrote to the registry an entry to start-up
automatically, I'm not sure Wine honors this.

If you are in doubt, just wipe you wine files (I think they are in
~/.wine, but I haven't used Wine in years) and start again.
