Hi
first of all, awesome site.

The problem started a day ago when none of the programs installed on my D drive showed up on the add/remove programs list. Before this, I was able to see all of the programs installed on my computer. Im guessing that my computer has started to boot from C or something.. (i reinstalled windows on the D drive during a failed attempt to reformat around 6 months ago).

can anyone help me figure out how to display programs from both drives again?

thanks in advance.

HI fwabbin sorry for the delay and welcome to geeks to go.

I apologize for the delay the fix for this issue can be quite advanced.

My best advice would be to reinstall the programs.

Have you done a windows repair install or a system restore lately?

Add/Remove Programs lists stuff that is installed into the Windows that is running at the time. Whether its on Drive C or Drive D is irrelevant. It may well be that the computer has decided for whatever reason to boot off the wrong drive.
