Q4- I do notice that there is alott of HD clicking for a few min., immediately after a Definition Update.

Does a DU trigger some kind of Full Silent scan?-

If so, what kind of scan is it, and what files get scanned?

It isn't. The IKARUS engine is rebuilding it's signature database which includes decrypting and unpacking the current t3sigs.vdb, applying the differential updates obtained from the online update as well as packing and encrypting the newly generated database and saving it to disk.

Re: " The IKARUS engine is rebuilding it's signature database..."?-

Q1?- Would it be better to wait a few min for IKARUS to rebuild, before a reboot?

Q2?- If so, and the update is just a few thousand signatures, and Not a Major... Update (I monitor how long the toolbar icon spins...)-

How long should I wait before a reboot?

Q3?- How long should I wait for a Major update?

It doesn't matter as long as you don't reboot during the update.

Q3?- How long should I wait for a Major update?

Same. As soon as the little info box telling you that an update was applied shows up, you can reboot.
