Upgrade Program

I have recently upgraded my computer with a new cpu,motherboard and ram,however the shop advised me to install a new hard disc for the OS.I tried to tell them about sysprep but they said because my version of Win7 was an upgrade it would'nt work.I said ok and they installed a new hard disc with Win7 64bit and left me with a second hard drive with my programs on it all these programs were installed with Win7 32bit running.I'm now trying to uninstall a program from my second hard drive but it doesn't appear in the control panel to uninstall,is there anyway to get the the programs on drive D into the control panel?It seems as though its two separate systems although the programs run ok so they must be in the registrary.Any advice appreciated!!

You can not transfer nor uninstall programs between a 32 bit and a 64 bit system or any separate installations.
Do you have personal data on the old disk that you want to save?
You can simply delete windows files and program files from the old hdd.

Post back with these things.
