Did you run CHKDSK and defragment lately? You probably should do both of those first. Open My Computer, then right-click your partition (one first, then the second) and click Properties, then go to the Tools (may be something else, I'm in Linux right now, so I'm not sure) tab and click Scan Now..., then check all the checkmarks. You will be prompted to schedule it for a restart, so click yes and restart your computer when you are ready. Once it restarts, your computer will say it is going to scan your hard drive, press a key to continue into Windows and skip the scan. Don't skip the scan, but it will take a while.
When that is done, follow the same steps as before, but instead click Defragment Now...
Once that is done, do the same thing over with your other parition.

First of all, thanks for your time and sorry not getting back sooner.
Amongst other things(away from the computer, I managed to get around to do what you have suggested.
Well we have a big improvement we are not crashing the system when starting PartitionMagic, the program starts up and I go through the routine of merging the partitions but I get a :
" Access violation at address 0052DC00 in module 'PMagicNT.exe'. Read of address 00000008. "
when I hit the go icon
Now where would I go from here?

However, I believe the main 2 solutions are an upgrade to PM 8 or try using the PM rescue disks instead.

Do I switch it off using the Start/run/msconfig an do the reboot thing?
Well I will have to dig in the depths of my drawers of my desk to find the rescue disks
I will let you know how it works

I tryed the PM7 again but I still got the " Access violation at address 0052DC00 in module 'PMagicNT.exe'. Read of address 00000008. " So I took the plunge and got the rescue disc going but on the side that was merging
First I manmaged to do the merge BUT......... I could not get back to main operating system
I mucked around with the PM7 in rescue mode and managed to get all going again after a few boots and almost to the fact that I might have lost everything.
