XPS drivers removal

I tried without luck to uninstall/change the the location of the XPS printer driver.

Strangely, the XPS printer driver files seem to have been placed on an otherwise empty D: partition of the one HD.
Deleted the printer. I stopped the spooler service in case it still had a lock on these files. Could not delete the driver folder. cacls revealed Administrators did not have full control over the driver files.

Objective is to completely remove the driver files so that if reinstalled they could properly be on C:. The C: partition could then be enlarged
What is the bast plan? Presumably http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/search/DownloadResults.aspx?q=XPS%20Essential%20Pack could be used to reinstall if needed?

These are the files on D:

What about this D: partition thing though - isn't it rather odd that those files got there? I would have thought that this XPS update for XP was system-installed. If so, why did system files get on the D: partition?
