Why are you asking this in the Windows NT Forum?

Just to answer the question:

If you have room on your hard drive, you can increase the hard drive space using a utility called Gparted.
You can download and burn gparted to a CD, and you can boot it into your computer and edit the partiton table there.

It is not reccomended if you do not know what you are doing, as you can damage your PC and loose your data if you perform a mistake (I have been there and done that!)

and before you set about tweaking any partition... first ensure you have copied all data etc. to optical media; so that if "anything" goes awry... your data etc. is safe elsewhere...

WOW, I don't understand why you still keep windows vista, not use windows 7, the vista will cost much room to install than other OS.

If you still not want to reinstall other OS, the built-in disk management can increase the system partition when there's some unalloaced space behind it. You could delete the partition behind the system drive then add the unalloaced space into your system partition. If you can not delete the partition, you could refer to this article "Vista C drive full"
