Maybe it is because your c drive has been stuffed with a lot of files. The unused space is not enough. try to transfer some non-system files to other data partition. or find a free partition manager software, like easeus partition master or other software you know to extend the system partition.

Poppyalex: The poster does not need to partition the drive if they are running out of space, they need to manage the space that it there better, or add another drive (internal for desktop, off load to external for portable). Plus Windows Disk Manager is safest for partitioning in Windows 7.

Managekyou (OP): Depending on your situation, you need to:
1- Dump unneeded files.
2- Uninstall unneeded programs.
3- Do disk clean up and then disk defragment.
4a- For desktop: Add an additional hard drive ($40.-$60.) and move all of your personal files to the new drive to make room for Windows to work properly.
4b- For Laptop: Purchase an external hard drive and move files not immediately needed to the portable drive (and back up everything else).
4- Once you make additional room on hard drive, defrag it again.
5- Depending on the amount of memory your system has, you might benefit from adding more RAM (you will use paging file less and therefore use that reserved part of hard drive less).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
