New files created depends a lot on what applications you have running on your laptop. If yours is company issue, the number of files should be less as some of the burden is carried by the server-side part of the software solution. But again, depending on how things are run, corporate solutions could add rather than reduce the number of files.
If you use Windows explorer as is, many systems files will not be shown in the count of files you have as they are hidden by default.
If you clear down/delete your temp internet files, etc., with Disk Cleanup utility followed by a defrag, your a/v scan should take less time.
Usually, one would run a full a/v scan when the PC is not required, say overnight? A full scan supplements on-the-fly checks on new files coming into the system. Daily seems a bit excessive though. Do you have any particular reason to feel this frequency is needed?
