Recovery Partition (Drive: D) in Vista

hi, everyone:

Rorschach112 just finished helping me get rid of that nasty Google Redirect thing. I'd like to start behaving a bit more responsibly in using my computer, which means I feel I need to seriously address the following:

1. I hate Vista (personal, I'll have get over it)
2. My D: drive shows as full
3. System Restore has never worked
4. I didn't make a set of recovery disks after I bought the machine (very dumb, I know) and the utility won't let me do it now

I've researched the recovery partition thing and can't find much info that seems useful. I'm pretty sure old system restore points are what is clogging the d drive, but I don't know enough to safely go into the drive and start deleting things.

Additionally, I experienced an external hard drive failure recently which may or may not be related to my malware problem (Rorschach112 thought it unlikely but possible).

I could use some help, if someone has the time.
