Default Drive ?

  1. Hey I recently had someone fix my computer due to a virus and they added a drive of some sort, with windows backup utility. I guess this was to get past the virus? ... Well its like the primary drive (C:) and my big one with 225 GB is (D:) ... I was wondering if you could somehow change the default drive. You know when you go to install programs the default directory is C:/Program yaddy yaddy yadda .. Well its a pain to change that directory every single time... Is there a way I can set that default directory to C: or can I just like switch them or around or something. This new drive C: has all of my drivers and operating stuff on it but all my programs go on my D: .. I'm not used to having 2 different drives so its kinda confusing and what not. Any help would be appreciated.

    Well. Windows is installed on this puny 7GB Drive so I suppose I have to uninstall windows completely again and reinstall it on my main drive.
