Full scan vs full reputation scan

Will I be less protected if I did not run the full reputation at all, opting to the full scan and quick scan instead?

Re: Full scan vs full reputation scan

Well, we can say that Reputation scans are some kind of extensions of normal system/quick virus scans, but it's not 100% true...

If you wish, of course you can ignore running any reputation scans, and use only the normal scans, you will be fully protected.

But I would recommend to run manual Rep. scnans as well sometimes, eg. ones a month or so.
