It's "bottom anchor" in most tests, the update shedule is "whatever".
And while I thought it was low overhead, it sometimes churns away in the background, but it's still quite low compared to some.

The plus points... free with no renewals & no nags or ads, refreshingly low rate of FP.
But definitely not one for "high risk" users.

Another overall negative, it does not support "on execute only" scanning, so it will vastly degrade the speed of file copying on anything that is not exempt from scanning
