The window that open should already be in the advenced tab. Click settings under performance, go to the advanced tab in that window and click change under Virtual Memory. Uncheck the box at the top and then select no paging file. After that you should be able to follow the steps in the links below, but I seem to recall extending the partition your current OS is on as impossible to do within Windows 7. If that is the case Greg should be able to help or I can try to find the relevent information for doing this myself.

Here's some screenshots to go with Petey's instructions,

Hi Lauren -

Petey is exactly right about the need for deleting the page file on D so you can delete D and extend C into its space. Derek has provided you screenshots to make it even easier.

Hopefully you can save the install you accidentally did to the Recovery Partition as long as the performance is good and it all sorts out satisfactorily. If not clean reinstall following these steps to get a perfect reinstall of factory OEM: Reinstalling Windows 7. Check these steps to help you finish setup after the issues are resolved.

Here is a link to a thread today with the identical issue if special commands are required to delete D: Low disk space after reinstalling windows seven.. It is unusual to have two identical rare reinstall issues on the same day but proves that is it not hard to do.
