Essential Software for laptop

My company just upgraded my old laptop. They have a policy that any laptops over four years old can be purchased for $50. OF course they wiped off the company's licensed and proprietary software.
I decided to purchase the laptop for my wife. She is a teacher, and we thought it would be convenient for her to have some mobility.
The Laptop is a Dell Latitude with a Pentium III processor and 256 ram.
The company gave it to me with Windows Me, Outlook express and IE 5.5 and not much else.
I plan on upgarding the OS to Windows 2000, IE 6.0 and adding a firewall, Anti-virus and Microsoft office.
Can anyone recommend any other essentials that we may need?
