Why should you schedule a regular virus scan ?

Solution

While it is true that antivirus packages scan most files against known conditions established by the most currently installed signatures, they do not "scan" the file system in real time. The file system is effectively monitored for accesses and file manipulations done in a way that the antivirus program considers to be a threat. Therefore, scheduled scans on PCs would be highly recommended as part of your defense-in-depth strategy against spyware, malware, trojans, and viruses.
