A few months ago I upgraded my PC and reformatted my main HDD (C Partition) to Win 7. After the reformat, I changed the default installation location to the larger partition (E) via adjustments in the registry through regedit.exe.

However, whenever I install a program, for example a game, the installer for the program creates a desktop icon right before it finished up. The problem is when I click on that desktop icon, it gives me an error stating that the desktop icon is not specified to the actual place in which the program was installed (E). Is there any way to fix this small problem in the registry? Thanks for the help. :D

Change it back to what it was before you screwed around in the registry and do things properly. Use 'Custom Install' if you want to control where things go.
