    Once you install it none it downloads the updates all by itself all you have to do is manually run it twice a month to make sure you don't have any problems

    Antivirus software doesn't require any kind of maintenance. Rather, the antivirus software performs maintenance on the computer.

    The software will inform you when there's an update, but that's not "maintenance", per se, because you don't NEED to update your antivirus software for it to continue running. However, most (if not all) antivirus softwares require an annual fee to continue using them, so in a sense, that might possibly be considered "maintenance" (but not in the technical term).
