My daughter complained to me that her laptop was slow, froze up and crashed often.  I checked the system out and found the following:

That's normal Windows behaviour. Without a special 3rd party program like Partition Magic, you cannot merge partitions under Windows. You can delete both partitions to start over with the 18GB partition, but that would mean that you have to delete the Windows partition as well, thereby forcing your daughter to reinstall Windows and start all over again.

But why not format the 11GB partition and use it as it were a new harddrive? That's the easiest solution. It's also useful to clear up unused programs on the C: drive, delete temporary internet files and the contents of all temp folders. You may want to test how much room you get free from disabling the Recovery files, if she's using WinME or XP.
