Angry PC partition

c: and F:...i need to resize the c: and install word since it cant be installed anywhere else..how do i do this..i tried the usual going into the data format window but dont see any way to resize the C:...

(dont ask me to get partition 8 since its no longer free ..perhaps some other program similiar to that which is a shareware?)

you can't resize with that. If you need to that you'll have to get over being a cheapskate and get PMagic

or, stay a cheapskate and go the cheap way... save all your data and re-partition and re-format your HD then re-install windows.
