Unhappy problems with reformating

hello TF.

i recently reformated my HDD and made 2 partitions , C (20gb)and D(60GB). i installed the OS (XP) on C. i was wondering how can i get all the program files over the D drive. i havent installed any programs on C yet except the OS but i need the program files folder on the D drive. is this possible or do have to just install programs on the D drive.

Also, this should probly be in a different thread but now that i have wiped the Hard drive scroll feature lags. like if i scroll down or up it just lags. i think its to do with the screens refresh rate. do i need a driver. is it my graphics card driver?

thanx for all the help

I was playing around with a program called partition magic, I think it has a thing that will move files from one partition to another...

PartitionMagic is a computer program for hard disk drive partitioning originally made by the company PowerQuest but now owned by Symantec. It runs on the Microsoft Windows operating system or from a bootable CD-ROM and enables creation and modification of partitions. Already existing partitions with data in their file systems can be resized without the data being erased. The lastest verion is 8.0.
