Actually, the first result is for a 'blogspot' page that states it's a Windows Driver and not to delete it.
You shouldn't delete gnkvhdsm.sys as it is an important file!
I've NEVER seen this verbiage on any legitimate site analyzing a system file.
The remaining search results contain links in forums to this page.
I'm 99.99999% sure this is a virus and the author/perpetrator spammed the net with a link to a site he created stating that it's a safe application.
Boot into safe mode with networking, download MBAM (MalwareBytes Anti-Malware), update it to current signatures, and run it. If it doesn't identify the file as malicious, download a different AV software package and rescan. Here's a link to a site with plenty of different Virus removal packages.
