Looks like you did fail your reading comprehension - checking 4-8
times a day means an interval of 6-3 hours - certainly less than once
an hour.

The short answer is - you should upgrade to 0.80 or later anyway, to
ensure you're able to use the latest signatures.

The long answer is - this belongs on the clamav list, where it's been
discussed already (go read the archives).
