Have you dual-booted your PC with a Linux OS? If so, that file may be related to Grub4Dos, a Linux bootloader...

If you really don't want it there, here's what you can do: Change the name of the file. Leave it like that for a week or two. If your computer continues to work just as it did before, it is probably safe to delete the file.
