I have a Dell computer and I recently had to wipe everything and reload Windows Vista which went OK. However, every time I go to download a new bit of software, say mcafee or messenger for example, it tries to download it to Dells recovery drive D; but the problem is this drive/partition/whatever is full as it is quite small and as I understand only exists to hold the recovery files. My C: drive on the other hand is sitting there empty but programmes insist on trying to save to the full recovery drive D. Any help?

Yes, direct your browser to download somewhere else. Recovery partition shouldn't be touched.

Can you instruct me how to direct my browser to do that. It doesn't ever give you an option to choose.

Thanks
