First, make sure you have no data on either of the partitions that you want to delete, then using Windows Disk Management (in the W7 search Bar just search for it) delete the 2 partitions and make one new partition that is only one volume.

After that, i would run disk defrag and cleanup just to make sure everything is in tip top shape

Oh, yeah, forgot about Defrag. Most of my systems use ext3/4 so don't have to worry about such things
