    get a copy of Spywareblaster, run update, and immunize;

    be sure to get a router with NAT+SPI features

    AVG Free is a good AV product and
    (I turned off Resident Agent as it chews the battery by
    scanning too frequently IMO!)

    COMODO is a good replacement for the Windows Firewall
    (just turn off Component monitoring)

    Give us more specs on what you have now on the laptop. There are plenty of upgrades that you can do to any laptop. One of the most basic and useful upgrades i would say is ram. I just upgraded my 512 to 2 gb and it makes a big difference
