Should I manually scan my hard disks on a daily basis?

No, this is not necessary.
The Virus & Spy Protection includes real-time scanning, which means that your system is scanned for viruses in real time. You can scan manually for viruses by defining a 'Scheduled Scanning' routine.
To do this, open the 'Advanced' settings of the Virus Protection, go to the 'Scheduled Scanning' and define the scanning routine. Make sure that the 'Enable scheduled scanning' check box is selected.
