See image for suggested settings, scan created (e.g. when downloaded, etc.) will give you another level of protection before the last level of protection, a scan before opening files. Like all things in life there are compromises, like the more files you scan there is a potential performance slowdown (negligible on my system).

Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.4.6112 (build 24.4.9067.762) UI 1.0.803/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
