Nope, I would recommend installing windows security essentials, which provides free antivirus and antispyware protection.

Service Pack 1 is out there if you want, but is by no means necessary.

As you install more apps, keep an eye on what programs launch at startup.

To do this, press the start button and type "msconfig". Click on the startup tab and uncheck any program you don't want running all the time. Some programs need to be running all the time, such as drivers, so don't uncheck everything.
