Chances are yes,  most applications install some portion of their app in either c:\program files or C:\program files (x86), also some install files in the common files folder.
Also usually there are registry entries associated with the app.

Yes, it depends on the application, even if change the directory to D:\ parts of the application might still install on C:\.
