I have AVG set to scan every day on both my systems, however, I usually pause and/or stop it, so I voted once a week.

I usually do it once a month however I voted once every other month is when I typically get around to it.

 

I don't like doing viruses scans all the time because with the 500GB of stuff on my computer it takes about 5-6 hours for it to go through everything.

 

There's also the fact that the scans never turn up anything I can't remember the last time I got a virus its been at least 6-7 years ago and it didn't really do anything to the computer either.

I voted the last one. I'm not too scared about my Linux box getting infected, though the Windows one could probably use a scan once in a while.
