    Every saturday morning. I also make NOD run other programs like defrag & Ewido when the regular scan is done.

    Once per week for me as well. No point in grinding the hard drive all the time, assuming virus definition updates are done every day and other layered protection is in place.

    NOD does a scan every week on Wednesday. For defragentation I use MST defrag and that baby works the entire day on the background to keep the systeem smooth without much impact on the system. MST defrag uses only 2 kB.
