I set mine to paranoid, I have never tested it out. In theory it's supposed to help but I just add it into the many layers of security I use just in case. It doesn't replace any security tools just helps block some 0-day attacks on common vectors like flash, java, or office (or other programs you add into it).

Well for Vista and 7 can be fully activated like SEHOP, DEP and ASLR while Windows XP have DEP only on works. So I recommended that everything must be enable.

When you open like Processor Explorer once the process is under of EMET it injects like dll as its a sign that works to prevent any mitigate attacks.

It will not bother any CPU/RAM Consumption.
