what I meant is you need to delete the partition ... then click apply to accept the changes and usually the program will ask you to restart the computer

With these 3rd party partition management tools, you usually have to click APPLY to enforce the changes - I know this is the case with AOEMI, Partition Wizard and EASEUS. It sounds like you have not been doing that.

There is NO way on earth you can delete a partition using a 3rd party program, only for it to appear like magic in Windows Disk Management.....unless you aren't applying the changes in the 3rd party software.
