    I keep deleting it, but it gets created again and again in the root of my mSD card? I never take any screenshots.

    Are you launching the Homebrew Launcher when this happens? It creates this file upon launch if it doesn't exist, if I recall correctly.

    Unsure, but it seems to keep adding screenshots, the file becomes larger...?

    You probably keep accidentally pressing the home button each time you wanted to exit back to home menu..

    It's a feature of the Homebrew Launcher. Like Ichigo said, if you hit home, it takes a screenshot. There's not really a lot you can do to prevent the screenshot file from being created, unless you either don't launch the HBL anymore, or rebuild the *hax payload so it doesn't have that functionality. Alternatively, use a file browser to delete the file from time to time.
