Not necessarily. Although it is disabled by default, some programs like Avast have a "Detect PUPs"(potentially unwanted programs) option. If you use Avast, be sure to go into the various scanner options and enable it.
Eset Smart Security has the same options during install, been using it for years now.
I personally think its ridiculously low on resource usage, probably the biggest thing you notice is the update when you boot up:)
