What are some of the ways to differentiate between srescan.sys from ZoneAlarm and srescan.sys from a trojan/malware?

if srescan.sys is located anywhere other than, C:\Windows\System32, then you have problems

I have only a copy of it under Windows\System32\Zonelabs. However, scanning with RootRepeal showed a srescan.sys that's hidden. When I tried to wipe it, it says invalid path. I am suspicious that this is not the same one as the one under System32 directory.

I actually solved this problem. I uninstalled Zone Alarm to see, and srescan.sys disappeared with it. To me, that means srescan.sys was legit from Zone Alarm.
