Default McAfee Vshield

I use McAfee Vshield for an anti virus program on my win 98 se machine. The question I have is whether it is best to scan All Files or just Program and Compressed files on start up of my computer? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

It was be safer to scan all upon boot. Is it needed???? Probably not. Scanning system files upon boot and all files ince a week should be fine.
