Default New Guy New Computer ?'s

Hello everyone, I'm new here and just bought a new computer. Its an eMachines T5212 desktop with the Windows XP Media Center Edition. My question is what should I do to it right after I plug it in and turn it on. I know that I need antivirus, I use AVG free edition on my computer now and it seems to work pretty well, will it be okay for the new computer? Also I think that you have to go online to download it, is that a horrible idea? Or is there a way to just transfer it on a disk or something? Also what kind of setup should I do. Heres what I know...
- Get rid of all demo stuff
- Get rid of the stupid AOL free trial it came with
- Thats about all I know.....
Thanks!! Any help or anything I missed would be greatly appeciated

About security - read this post:

Other than that you shouldn't really have to do anything, maybe uninstall all those AOL demos and crap.
