    Hi, suppose I have infected by dangerous kernel rootkit, If I install Qubes, then would malware still able to intercept any data, API calls/ requests etc or would Qubes isolate & encrypt any key strokes. incoming/ outgoing requests/ calls/ data between kernel?

    If infected on the kernel level, my strong advice would be to wipe your computer (format) and install the Linux distro of your choice. If Qubes is the Linux distro you wish to use, then by all means, go for it. The OS claims to be more secure and perhaps that is true, but nothing can protect you from you. My best advice is that you learn from your mistakes and in doing so, prevent yourself from being infected, again.
