To access disk management: From the start menu right click computer and click manage. In the left pane of the "Computer Management" window that opens up click disk management and post a snip of that.

You can't use unallocated space. You must format unallocated space to use it.

OK.
I haven't seen that warning before.
What happens if you use "Error-checking" on that disk?

I'd be tempted to borrow a Live Linux CD and use GParted to format that section.
