It seems your imagination of Virus scanning schemes a bit outdated... Like, 8
years old.
Normal monitoring antivirus scan each file only once - at the creation or
modification. And that does not take long time for single file.
Then it forget about it. Reading from file, executing it will
never trigger a scan unless you specifically told to do so, or other, non
FS-related issues arise in process (Memory access to the different process,
IRQ table manipulation, etc).
