Defrag the harddrive. Shrink drive D and add the space to drive C. Run Cleanup and delete all system restore points.

Good suggestions but not in the right order. You won't be able to defrag if the drive is full.

Start by uninstalling programs you don't use.
Review/delete files in your user directory
Run disk cleanup off the accessories/system tools menu.

Run chkdsk /f on each partition to make sure of no file/disk corruption
Backup your data
Instead of the shrink d: and then expand c: I would suggest just deleting d: and expand c: into that space creating one large c:

This assumes d: is not a recovery partition. If it is I would not delete it and would chose a different path of cloning to a larger drive.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
