I don't know anything about that suite, but I very much like this:
http://www.activevirusshield.com/antivirus/freeav/index.adp ?
which is based on Kaspersky antivirus (KAV) version 6. It has the
basic file and email modules plus manual or auto updating. It's very
configurable, and it's a very good basic antimalware product. Just
don't opt for the Toolbar during installation.

Insofar as using a suite goes, many users prefer to use a firewall
and antispyware of their (our) own choosing. Since it appears the
suite requires Win XP, you have the option of using the firewall
built into SP2, for one alternative. Better yet, use a "always there"
external NAT router/fw.

Can services, such as the resident scanner and email scanning, in
Active Virus Shield be turned on and off? Are updates small and fast
and the server(s) not too busy?

I know I could just try it, but thought you might save me a little
trouble. Thanks!

Yes they can.

Normally. It's best to update often to keep the # of databases
that need to downloaded to a minimum. It's not like some av
products that always dump huge update files on you. They
are all relatively small.
