You can not change that option without reinstalling.

A fast way to uninstall KDE is the following
1) Execute "Shutdown KDE" (kwinshutdown.exe), to stop KDE related process
2) Rename your KDE folder to KDE-back (if some process is running you
will not be able to rename)
3) Launch KDE installer.

Note: Step 2) will left all menu entries pointing to a folder that
doesn't exist anymore, but you can delete them by hand. If you
reinstall at the same folder they will be correct again.

If you are on Windows Vista, or 7 (8?), the "Program Files" folder is
protected, and any program requires explicit permission from the user
to write, which is very annoying.

Since KDE doesn't require to be installed in ProgramFiles, you can
install it in any place writable by your user. I usually install it at
c:\Users\foobar\KDE, where "foobar" is my username.
