If you don’t want to buy Microsoft Office multiple times for multiple computers, try Openoffice.org, which has compatible versions of Word, Excel and Power Point – without having to spend thousands for the brand name. Likewise, several antivirus software downloads like Avast or AVG can be found for free via Download.com (just make sure to choose a reputable one, first, based on the expert and user ratings). If you have to buy, see if the software company will let you give it a “test drive” for 30 days or so to make sure it will work for you. Adobe offers free trials on all of their products including CS4, Photoshop, and Acrobat.
