This is for my laptop. I did a scan and saw that I have a kernal filter in orange. I was wondering if this is safe? If not may I have assistance to get rid of it?

Ok. I used RogueKiller and it detected I have a kernel filter. It was in orange. I have no idea if it is legit or not and I don't know how to google since it matches the name of another. Just with a different number. I'm using Windows 7.

Official Tutorials:
RogueKiller Official Tutorial
RRogueKiller Official tutorial
RogueKiller Documentation to understand the reports

You can also ask the developer (Tigzy) a question, report an issue or suggestion at his home site: RogueKiller Feedback

If you're unsure how to use a particular security tool or interpret the log it generates, then you probably should not be using it. Some tools are intended for advanced users or to be used under the guidance of an expert who can interpret the log results and investigate it for malicious entries before taking any removal action.
