Good.
Go back to Disk Management, right click on D partition, and click Delete Volume...
When operations completes, right click on C partition, and click Extend Volume...
When done, you should have one big drive.

I have tried a couple of times to delete the D drive, but it says that Windows can't delete the active system partition.

For the C drive: healthy, (boot, page file, crash dump, primary partition)

For the D drive: healthy, (system, active, primary partition)

Is there still a way to combine them? Or at least shrink one and expand the other?

You said earlier:

I have a lot of the same files on that drive too for some reason

I suspect, you may have Windows files on both partitions, that's why Disk Management won't work here.

We'll need to use some 3rd party tool then.
I suggest, you use EASEUS Partition Master 3.5 Home Edition: http://www.partition...om/personal.htm

Is there a way I can completely uninstall windows from both drives and start over? I have already lost important files, so at this point it seems easier to start from scratch.

Sure thing. From the very same company, you can get Super Fdisk Bootable CD: http://www.ptdd.com/manual2.htm

THANK YOU!! :)

I was able to uninstall windows from both drives using that program, then reinstall vista with no problems.

After a couple of hours of reinstallation, I have 6 GB free on my C drive, and over 100 GB on the D drive!!!

This is not going to work.
Now, your Windows partition © is even smaller.
As I said, you have to remove D partition, expand C partition to a whole drive, and THEN install Vista.
