There are a variety of ways to do that - depending on your disk layout. Why don't you post a picture of your disk management. Than we can give you a more intelligent suggestion.

PS: there is an easy way and a hard way. But the easy way requires to run with a free OEM program from a CD. Do you think you could handle this - download the .iso, burn to CD, boot from CD ?? We would give you the links.

Here is how you can increase the partition size:

However, please post the screenshot I am sure whs would be able to suggest much better ways as well.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
