Also i know that anyone with a computer wants to keep the c drive clean to keep the pc running smooth. Is there a program that i can use to changed where my program files ect. are saved?

It's best to keep your program files on the same drive with OS, IMO.

You can keep your data files on another drive, no problem. Use Disk Management to Shrink your OS partition some and Format a New logical partition, so it doesn't accidentally get marked Active and derail the OS boot.
