I disagree. Eagle IS the problem maker. No modern program should install itself to C:\ . This is not only a problem for a standard Windows install in some cases it is also a problem with companies who have group policies that prohibit installs to C:\. Developers who set up their programs installer to default to c:\ are just making life hard for the users of their program.
Some of these types of programs that insist on wanting to install to C:\ do so because they cannot tolerate spaces in paths. Quite often they also do a really poor job of uninstalling themselves too. When I ran into this issue recently with Cygwin and a few other programs I created a ‘Dev’ folder under ‘…/user/documents’ . This path has no spaces which might cause problems for some programs and keeps the programs separated from ones that install properly to ‘/program files’ by default.

It seems to me also does Eagle is the problem maker, but if I dig a bit deeper I can say Eagle is not the problem maker.
