Is there a utility that will let me move an installed program to a different location or second HD changing the necessary registry entries ect...

I seem to remember seeing something like that in Norton's array of programs (I think it was Norton). but I want to stay away from Norton and was wondering if there is another third party program that can perform this function.

I would love to know that too, I know that with some little programs one can just take that folder frm program fiiles and move to another location, and I suppose if one has made a restore point beforehand one could play around a liittle.

well, depening on the program you could use Windoctor (part of norton utilities). however for programs like microsoft office I would just uninstall and then reinstall.
