Specify the interval to run quick scans per day

This policy setting allows you to specify an interval at which to perform a quick scan. The time value is represented as the number of hours between quick scans. Valid values range from 1 (every hour) to 24 (once per day). If set to zero interval quick scans will not occur. By default this setting is set to 0. If you enable this setting a quick scan will run at the interval specified. If you disable or do not configure this setting a quick scan will run at a default time.
