    The file seems to be associated with some kind of coupon / rebate scheme, possibly adware. I would rename it (for example to cpbrkpie.old) or move it to another folder and see what happens. If there are no problems after a day or two, you can safely delete it.

    .INF files are readable plain text. If you open in Notepad or similar, you may get some insight into its origin.
