I have yet to find 1-3 very important myself. As long as the AV provides real protection, launches on start up, and automatically checks for definition updates, your computer---if you exercise care in surfing, downloading, and opening E-mails) should be relatively safe. Scheduled scans of your hard drive (s) are unneeded, as long as you are careful to do so on a regular basis (I do so as a part of routine maintenance). If you find anything of importance in the scan results log, it is easy to copy and paste the information into you word processor for reference.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
