I've used it before and it's worked fine. It's not particularly resource intensive, but this is going back a number of years. Though all I use these days is Microsoft Security Essentials, since it's free and lightweight. I wouldn't worry too much about resource usage, provided you're running a reasonably modern PC with a muli-core CPU and plenty of ram there's really not to be concerned with in that department.
