I had previously changed my default profile from C: to H:. I had much too many applications installed and everything started going wrong. For example: When uninstalling, the process went ok but did not uninstall the application from the 'programs and features' and did not delete the files. This is just an example. So many things worked incorrectly and the system was so slow, I decided to re-install Windows 7. The problem is that I forgot to set the default profile to H: before reinstalling many programs. They now are all residing on C:. How can I get them onto H: without uninstalling everything on C: and then re-installing them again on H:

Can I Copy/Replace all of my installed applications from C:\Users\Richard to H:\Users\Richard and then uninstall all of the unwanted applications on H: followed by a re-build of my Itunes library OR should I uninstall everything from my C: drive, use Regedit to change the default profile and then install them again on H:?

When you re-install Windows you will lost all your files, so I think no.
