Assuming that the G: partition is empty, and on the smae physical drive as the others, you should be able to delete the partition, and then expand the D partition to fill the gap (assumimg there's no others in the way, of course!)

To do this you need to get at the Disk Management app - you don't say whether you're on Home or Pro - the following are the instructions for Pro (I think they're different for Home, but you should be able to do similar there with the assistance of the Help files)

R-click on your TaskBar, and select Properties
Click on the STart Menu tab, and click on the Customize button
Click on the Advanced tab, and scroll down to the bottom where you'll see System Administrative Tools - select to have a shortcut in the All Programs Menu
Click OK - and then click on the Start button - Programs- Administrative tools - Computer Management
Once the window has come up, click on Disk Management, under the Storage header, and you'll see a schematic of your HD, from which you can do all sorts of dangerous things.
