Does anyone know if CAV uses such automatic scanning?
Again from the user's manual:
On-access Scanning Protects your system from becoming infected
between full scans. This on-access, "behind-the-scenes" protection is
provided through Dynamic Virus Protection (DVP). DVP runs
transparent, on-access scans of each program that is run or file that
DVP is turned on by default and is set to disinfect when a virus
infection is found. You can turn off DVP protection or change its on-
access scanning properties through the Preferences menu of the
Command AntiVirus Main dialog box. For more information, refer to
Setting On-access Scanning Properties located later in this chapter.

Not very much merit at all. Perhaps a little peace of mind.
