  1. OK my C: Drive is almost full, 9 gb left. I want to install more stuff but don't want to fill it up. I have another drive thats empty but all my internet downloads/game saves/desktop icons/everything else automatically goes into my C: drive. How do i change it to go into my other drive without any problems. In other words how do i make my other drive my primary drive.

    You should be able to go to the Option/Preferences of those programs and change the Default download location. Also consider doing a "Disk Cleanup" (START>ALL PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>DISK CLEANUP). Check everything to be cleaned. Usually the Compress old files will give you an extra 1-2 GB of space. As far as making it your "PRIMARY" drive, you will need to do a reformat to accomplish this (IE Putting windows on that drive).
