Great list, just one thing missing - remove any protective filter, cheap UV filters flare like crazy.

Why do you want to upgrade your lens? what do you want to do but can't with the 18-55?

@Joe - I've added a diagram that may help you visualize how much empty space you need to leave when shooting

comment How do I compose an image for use as a browser background or wallpaper on a widescreen monitor?
@Joe - I wrote you have to be aware of cropping when shooting and leave plenty of empty space, if starting from 16:9 is easier for you go for it, but you will still need to crop over a fifth of the image's height (as opposed to about half with a 4:3 image common in point&shoot cameras) so you still can't fill the frame. and I ignored the web browser part because that's a completely different discussion that's not on-topic for this site (toolbar size can vary, the browser doesn't have to be maximized, page may be viewed from a device with different screen size, etc.)

comment Auto-focusing problem on a Canon 500D with a EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS(standard kit lens)
Just be careful about how much you pay to have it fixed, you can pick up a used EFS 18-55 for next to nothing (more than 10 sold for less than $60 on eBay this month alone, most of those for around $40) there are so many people trying to sell their kit lens after getting a better lens the market is saturated
