HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT WORM VIRUSES ARE EXPUNGED IN XP?

Question

My virus software recently detected a worm. It was cleaned up by the software, but I am wondering if it could still be in the XP system recovery files, such as happens with my Millenium recovery files. If so, how can I clean up the system recovery files on the Xp computer? Thanks for your help, I couldn't find anything on the Microsoft web.
