Have and XP home SP3 system with kaspersky internet security 2011 that alerted to a major infection, during the process of removal and restart, the system locked up and would not boot.
I used a kaspersky rescue disk 10 to boot, it found and fixed the booting issue(s).

After being able to restart i ran rkill and the MBAM and found some other issue, ran SAS and found some issue as well. tdsskiller detected nothing.
that said all of those things were done in normal mode, not safe mode.

Ran SFC /scannow to make sure system files weren't corrupted, that took a bit of time.

Things seem to be working ok, but the system is still a bit laggy, still concerned there may be some residual infection or other issue to fix.
What should i do?

side note: Kaspersky seem to be pretty resource hungry, any thoughts on that?
