Try to free space up
Clean your temp files
Do regular defrag
Tranfer any Music, Video and photo on the C: drive to the D: drive
Uninstall any program on C: that you do not need
Empty your recycle bin
Hopefully after that your C: will have more space and will run more smoothly.

As for moving programs from C: to D: there is only one way to do that and it is to uninstall them and reinstall them to your drive D:, you cannot just move installed programs. When you reinstall them just choose Drive D: instead of C: when it asks you for the path (ex: C:/Program Files/Itunes)to the installation. Create a Programs Files Folder on D: and just change the C: to D: when you have the option (some programs will not give it to you).

You can use a program called JavaRa http://www.softpedia...load-97297.html
It will remove any old version of Java and keep only your latest one.

Here is how to redirect the whole My Documents folder...
Click Start.. right click ...My Documents.. and then click Properties.
Click the Target tab...
In the Target box..
Type the path to the folder location that you want.. and then click OK.
For example.. D:\My Stuff.
If the folder does not exist.. the Create Message dialog box is displayed.
Click Yes to create the folder.. and then click OK.
this will move ALL the folders and sub folders to the partition or drive you designated...
and anything you save in the future will go there as well ...saving you from having to drag and drop or cut and paste files in the future... depending how you have set up your folders it may be necessary do the same for any other folder you want to move to another partition or drive...
after this is completed defrag the system drive

turn off indexing ....its a resource hog and if you aren't searching for things on your computer 10 times a day it will only slow down your system....
click on start...my computer...right click on C: drive....properties...on the general tab..uncheck ...allow indexing on this drive and compress drive....
To clean your temp folder, recycle bin, index.dat etc..please download this free tool...
Don't install any Toolbars, or other programs, should it ask you...Just
uncheck the option of installing the Yahoo toolbar....if you get
the slim version it does not have the toolbar
thats the one I recommend...
It will put a shortcut on your Desktop.
Click on CCleaner to start it....
Before first use...
Select Options then Advanced.
UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"
also UNCHECK Old Prefetch data..
The rest of the standard settings are fine...
Then click "Run Cleaner"
DO NOT USE ANY OF THE OTHER TOOLS...RUNNING THEM MAY CAUSE OTHER PROBLEMS...
please make a note on how much it cleaned and post the results
