Windows 7: there is a disk alignment in my Dell Utility partition

there is a disk alignment in my Dell Utility partition

I have a new laptop with Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium installed.
It is a Dell XPS. It came with an extra partition for "Dell Utility" of size 40 Mb. This is the first partition.

There is a partition misalignment.
To check ,I booted an Ubuntu USB(live,without installing).
When I opened Disk Utility in Ubuntu, I find that there is a partition misalignment of 512 bytes with the Dell Utility partition.
How do I fix it?
The warning message says that there could be poor performance due to this.
Is it true?
Is it going to affect the performance of other drives or my general usage?

Thank You.
