Error When Deleting Partition

Well now I have a green partition and when I try to delete the partition, I get the error "There is not enough space avaliable on the disk(s) to complete this operation" I am doing this all on my internal hardive in my laptop. *Additional info* Windows 7; x64; 4gb RAM; (about) 100gb LEFT on C:
