There are no quarantees but taking prevention measures helps.

As I noted above Panda USB Vaccination disables the autorun file. I don't believe Kaspersky Rescue depends on that file as it is intended for you to boot from the usb. You may want to test it out to ensure you can boot before having to rely on it if your machine becomes infected. You can also use the Rescue Disk on a CD.
