When you say "now installs all the files on D" when did this first occur; after a Windows Update, after installing some software, after a system crash? Please submit the answer along with the following;

1. In Windows 7 and Windows Vista, click on the Start button.
2. Type the following command in the text box:
diskmgmt.msc
...and then hit the Enter key or press the OK button
3. Follow the instructions below;
