Honestly, before I switched I found that the performance degradation that came with continuous virus scanning on Windows was worse than most viruses.
In my experience, it depended on the program you were using.. I've always found that the big box brands (McAfee, Norton, etc) are serious resource hogs at all times and had issues with killing stuff. The free options (Malwarebytes, AVG, etc) seemed to be consistently better on both fronts.
