I have Norton (on windows 8.1) and the only file Norton doesn't list a Trust level (shows Unknown) is the file app2.ini.exe (also app2.ini.exe.aux) and the only info I can find on the net is that viruses sometimes are named this to Hide.

    Does anyone know what this file does?  Can I delete it?  Is it safe?

 I called Microsoft and they said that these files aren't one of theirs (???).

Norton also lists this file isn't on a lot of peoples computers, which is a red flag.
