Windows 7: Remove Vista from a dual-boot w/win 7

C is confirmed to be Vista then.

If you want to get it cleanest you can wipe it from Win7: Diskpart Clean Command

Otherwise if you want to save the partition just format it in Disk Mgmt, or if you want to repartition Delete it instead. Partition or Volume - Delete
Partition or Volume - Create New
