Windows 7: Extend into Free Space

Extend into Free Space

I had Fedora Live installed on my computer for a class that I was taking, I was dual booting with Win 7. I know longer need Fedora so I deleted or cleared it from the partition. I want to extend the "C drive" into it like was before, but I can't. I have tried the command prompt and attempted the steps in other threads but have no luck. Everyone's threads are a little different so I don't want to mess something up. Here are the screen shots.

Thanks

Just right click the green partition and delete away.

You should then have a black section instead and from your Windows 7 partition, right-click and EXTEND.

Use Disk Mgmt to Extend C:

If it fails, post back a screenshot of full Disk Mgmt drive map, using Snipping tool in Start menu, attach file using paper clip in reply box.
