Scan with Kasperskys live cd

--It is in iso/image format so you will have to burn it to a cd.
--Once the cd is created, boot the infected machine to that cd and scan your system
NB-Update the virus database in live cd before scanning.

Also, as Nobus suggested a repair installation
 you may have to do a repair installation afterwards, depending on what infected files are removed scaning with the live cd
I ended up re-installing Karspersky
During the installation/setup process Karspersky detected a significant number of trojans running as live processes
After completed installation it and reboot it found some more
After removing those and another reboot the PC seemed to work fine.

I did a restart in safe mode and it didn't stop at tdi.sys

Is it safe to assume it's now ok?
