New Hard Drive but what goes on first?

I've just installed a new 40Gb H/D and Windows XP Home O/S. I'm aware of the varied dangers on the internet but would be grateful for advice on what to install to help prevent problems and in what order. I originally had AVG, Zone Alarm and Adaware but, looking at the selections detailed by Belatucadrus, I'm probably missing vital ones. Thanks in anticipation for some helpful advice! As I speak, a Messenger Service advert has just appeared.

You do not need extra just because you fitted a extra drive. It’s just like making your desktop bigger you can get more rubbish on it

See what I mean

don't quite get your drift the above are more or less obligatary now if you are on the internet

I use them but that's what I ment in that the more space the more things are loaded

I use them but that's what I meant in that the more space the more things are loaded. PS if you had been in the past with a 300mb drive I doubt that you would think of putting items like we put on today

  stalion 23:27 02 Jun 2004

ok see what you mean would have to think twice about what you loaded with 300mb drive.But then we have to address the current situation now as you are aware there was not the threat of viruses then like we have today.Regards

Thanks VoG...now disabled Windows Messenger...
Thanks too to Stalion and Woodchip. By the way, Woodchip I'm not intending filling up available space but just seriously asking what the vital safety programmes are. I had a virus attack on my previous hard drive!
