Is there a way besides deleting the program folders to uninstall a program from a secondary or slave drive?

Hi DreadTech :)

You should never delete a program folder to uninstall a program, this isn't the right way to proceed. You should always uninstall your programs via the Control Panel. If you cannot find the program you want to uninstall there, usually, in their program folder, they have a uninstaller (uninstall.exe, unins000.exe, uninst000.exe, uninstall.exe, setup.exe which gives you the option to uninstall, etc.) Even if programs are installed on a drive other than the one Windows is on, they will show up as an installed program under "Uninstall a program" in the Control Panel and you can uninstall them from there.
