Antivirus scan schedules?

Whatever makes you 'Feel good'.

Using Windows on the Internet is a huge gamble at all times, and setting a schedule to scan for malware is pointless.

Once anything gets into your system, all bets are off about what it can or may do. In one minute after infection, or one week.

Impractical as it sounds, scanning every time you close down for the day is about the best you can plan for.

You see, malware purveyors don't follow a daily "Release the Kraken!" schedule. Fresh items are launched whenever, and it's often days, weeks or months before the good guys (anti-virus for instance) even notice it.

Malicious garbage is present on the 'Net incessantly, and if your PC is out there, you are exposed to it.

It takes a highly modified OS to shed the tsunami's of malware and an eternal commitment to security awareness and changes to keep them off life-support.
