Windows only partition

Due to the way that Windows works, it will insist on dumping everything, not just the files that are needed to boot, onto the partition you want to keep clean. This is by design and as Windows gets bigger every month with software coming in, going out, service packs coming in, more updates etc on an ongoing basis, eventually your small partition will fill up.
It is possible to change where My Documents and co live - right-click on them, choose Properties and there's an option to move them to a new drive or wherever.

I speak of personal experience, having a computer with 7 partitions (having windows alone on 1, programs on the 2nd, games on the 3rd, etc etc etc)
TuneUp Utilities allows you to do this Very well, and safely. I highly recommend it, if you're serious about what you want (because it isn't a free application, but very much worth the money.)
--Also, for the C: size, I set mine always to 20Gb, even though windows is only using 7 at the moment. The real minimum I'd put is 10, should drive space be at a premium.
