Windows 7: How to change default installations of any program to another drive?

How to change default installations of any program to another drive?

I installed windows 7 on my SSD. Besides a few games, I want all other program installs to go to my HDD. For instance, my internet security and all driver/utilities that are on CD's that came with the hardware. These programs/drivers/utilities do not give me any option to install to my HDD (E drive) and automatically install to my C drive. Is there any way I can do what I want?

Thanks.

You would find the option in the advanced mode setup for most of the programs (I only know two programs which doesn't allow changing of installation path - google chrome and photoscape).
