    You won't be able to (about a 10% chance you even could) replace the CPU, because its unlikely the motherboard's BIOS will support any significant change to CPU to make it worthwhile.

    As for the hard disk, you need a 2.5" hard disk. You could probably get a 1TB version, but its likely to cost you.

    Anti-virus: I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials, or AVG Free Edition 2011.
    Spyware/malware: I recommend Malwarebytes.
