It is perfectly safe: it is a manifest file for a Java application. It was created when you ran a Java application. It may be because you are running a Java application in the background somewhere, such as Limewire. Otherwise, you may be suffering from a malware infection. Use your best applications to search and remove any forms of malware: viruses, trojans, worms, dialers and so on.
