Windows 7: How to combine seperate volumes on same SSD after uninstall of Ubuntu?

How to combine seperate volumes on same SSD after uninstall of Ubuntu?

So I just uninstalled Ubuntu, and had a whole big problem with starting up my computer(don't even get me started), and now I'm here, my final problem. So as you can see by the image, my ssd is split up into multiple volumes. I want to know how to combine my main, Windows 7 volume, with my previously Ubuntu volume. At this point it is free space and I have no idea, nor could I find out how to do what I need. I am hoping someone here has a clue about this. Any suggestions?

Click Delete Partition to delete the extended Logical partition Free Space and make it Primary Unallocated Space.

Then extend C into the space: Partition or Volume - Extend

When I try to delete partition it says there is not enough space to do so. Makes no sense to me. Any more suggestions?

Could be. You have less than 10% free space on C. It may even need 15%. Temporarily backup/remove some stuff from C and try again.

Okay, sounds like a good idea. I deleted some stuff, freed up more space. I now have 17% available, and it still won't work. Any ideas?

Hmm, now you got me. This is indeed mysterious. Is there an error code with the message ??

Hi,

Do you get the same error if you attempt to remove the partition in Partion Wizard? Link to software in Greg's original post here:

Laptop won't start up after deleting Ubuntu partition

To Remove Linux take look at this post:
Error 0xc0000225 on boot
