You should use a bootable disc version of Partition Wizard, not the Windows installed version.

If you delete a partition, EVERYTHING on that partition will be lost.

Have you installed any applications to any drive other than C?

Do you have any other drive, probably external, to which you can move what is on some of these partitions?

If you do, I'd temporarily move the contents of A, B, D, G, and O to that other drive as a backup precaution.

If you do not have another drive, I'd do this:

B, D, G, and O have a combined occupied space of about 76 GB.

The A partition has 93 GB of free space.

So I'd move whatever is on B, D, G, and O to A.

And then delete B, D, G, and O, which would leave you with System Reserved, C, A, and a bunch of unallocated space.

That’s what I’d do. Wait and see what Greg says also.

While you are waiting, ask yourself why you need more than 3 or 4 partitions.

thank you my friend.i do not have external har drive. i will move the data of other drives to the A Drive as you said.
i have a question.my friends told me if we install all of our programs at C Drive , the system will be slow.this is the reason that i installed my programs at D drive(look at picture below).is it true?
another question.as you said.if i change C Partition to basic is it posiible that the windows does not comming up?
i will tell you why i have 5 partitions except C:
the A and B are for my sisters.they keep their files on them
The G is for my mother for the same reason i said
The O is mine
and the D partition is the partition that i installed my programs on that.take a look at the picture below:

If you don't convert HD to Basic it will most likely stop booting soon. You have nearly ruined Win7 by converting to Basic without consulting anyone first.

Your programs should be installed to C since they become part of the OS which is on C.

Delete all but four partitions in order to get PW CD to convert to Basic. Download the bootable copy of Pro you own, or use pw422.zip ISO - Windows Live, burned to CD using Windows Image Burner.

Boot the CD, delete all but 4 partitions, then follow this video to convert dynamic disk to basic disk with Partition Wizard.

Back up your files first to external or another PC on the network.

Afterwards post back another screenshot of your Disk Mgmt drive map and listings, this time following the correct method here: Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums - Windows 7 Forums

We will give you the steps to convert one data partition to Logical so you can add as many Logical data partitions as you wish. How to set partition as Primary or Logical.
