Check to see if a browser add on in IE is causing the problem is really simple.

To disable add-ons in Internet Explorer 8

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Click the Tools button, and then click Manage Add-ons.
3. Under Show, click All add-ons.
4. Click the add-on you want to disable, and then click Disable.
5. Repeat step 4 for every add-on to disable. When you are finished, click Close.
Now restart IE and retry IE as before. Let us know if it still happens or not. If not then try enabling one add on at a time and trying IE again till you find the problem.
Most times the cause will be a toolbar add on.

PM Personal message, but although of course you can send me one anytime, forum rules prevent me helping you on PM.

No idea re IE on info provided you would have to check another site.

It depends on the program, but some aspects ie the shortcut for the desktop etc and the data to open it will of course go to C., as your other drives are only effectively storage drives.
However items such as your docs, images music will be entirely on E.

for Firefox you can set download location as follows.
1. Open Filefox
2. Click the Tools Menu
3. Click Options
4. Click Downloads tab
5. Under Download Folder browse to the folder you want firefox to use or select Ask me where to save every file
6. Click OK

IE is not as easy but can be done with a change to a registry key.

AND Good afternoon UK time rshaffer61.
