ntoskrnl.exe is windows operating system file. It is responsible for various system services such as hardware virtualization, process and memory management and so on. Because it is system process it should not be stopped. This process is required for windows to work properly. So you should allow this file that your computer and operating system will work good.

Personally, I'd block it. I block everything I'm not sure about. If the OS then complains that it can't do something because "whatever.exe" can't access the Internet, I'll go and switch the access rights by hand. Better safe than sorry, in my opinion!
