Ah right, why didnt you say. This should do it Dont forget to backup your registry first tho.
Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion
2. Find ProgramFilesDir whose default should be C:\Program Files
3. Change this to whatever directory you wish.

Thats an easy one

Click Start, and then point to My Documents.

Right-click My Documents, and then click Properties. Click the Target tab. In the Target box, do one of the following:

Type the path to the folder location that you want, and then click OK. If the folder does not exist, the Create Message dialog box is displayed. Click Yes to create the folder, and then click OK.

They should be inside my documents folder, so they should move when you change my documents location
