Default New Win XP PC - What Software?


I have just bought a new PC with Windows XP installed and was wondering if someone could suggest what software I should install before actually doing anything on it.

The current plan is to install AVG and Zone Alarm which is what I had on my last PC (recently deceased) and probably the usual adaware and spybot combo. But are there any other essentials I should look install to protect / enhance my new computer?
