They more than likely wont be there. The c drive is where your programs will be installed by default. Those are just saved programs, like a backup, which is what I do.

nak...i formatted my computer like 2 weeks ago. if you format you C drive, your programs wont be in Add/Remove Software but you can still use it. if you want to delete them/uninstall, you'd have to choose manually do it or click the uninsatall button.
