So you are saying you do not want programs installed to C:.
My suggestion then is to create a, example D:\Program folder. Then remember to point the install to that folder. This should work with most programs.
However, some may need to be on C: Also while programs should work with no problem following your plan, be aware they may launch slightly slower. This id due to their interaction with Win 7, it system files, the registry, which is all contained on the C: drive.
I have set up several XP machines in this manner with minimal problems other then those mentioned. I have yet to attempt it on Win 7.
