Default Anti-Virus: Why scan hard disk?

Once the hard disk is scanned for the first time by AV software, why bother having it do regular scans. If it is doing live protection, it will catch viruses as they come in and catch viruses as they go out. And if that is not enough, it will stop you from launching a program that contains a virus. So why stress your hard disk by having AV software grind through all the files once a week?
