I installed a new 1tb WD hardrive in my mid 2009 macbook pro along with upgrading from 4gb to 8 gb.

My start up disk is still almost full, booting up is extremely slow, and programs open up by themselves once booted up ex:word, excel.

New TB drive shows up alng with 8 GB but, new hard drive not updating somehere?  What am I missing?  See screenshots below
