Partition table issue - "unparititoned space" label stuck.

Hi guys

i was using one of the paritioning softwares and i ended up with the parition table as given in the attached pic.

is there an easy way to fix the partition table by removing the "unpartitioned space" fictitious labels in the table between e and f drives?

Edit:these entries show only in the XP textmode setup and not in the OS(7/XP) or anywhere else.

Can you press the Down arrow to highlight partitioned lines then Delete? If not you may need to boot to a CD such as GPARTED to manage the partitions. Your picture cuts off data on the left side, implies you have a second HDD connected, I'd disconnect that before working with the main drive.

the second drive is a usb stick

it doesnt allow me to delete them. how does one go about using gparted to delete these fictitious entries in the paritition table without harming the rest of the entries?
