You may try the Free Download Partition Wizard
. boot in PW, try to expand the Windows 7 partition.
But have a second thought before doing it. As it is a primary active partition having boot flag, expanding may harm the bootloader. Though a Startup Repair
will solve the windows bootloader, I am not sure about grub (perhaps you may have to update grub to get linux back in dual boot menu).
