My sister gave me her laptop because she knows nothing about computers and couldn't use it. It is a Gateway Model MT6728 Windows Vista 32-bit system. She said the system had a bunch of viruses but they fixed that and removed everything off the system. I booted up the system and am getting low disk space errors. There are no programs loaded. There is a C drive and a D drive. Nothing is on the D drive at all and there is 137.91 GB of free space. The C drive only has 83MB of free space out of 11.14 GB.
I've tried to extend the C drive, but the option is grayed out in Disk Management. I tried to delete the D drive, but the option is grayed out in Disk Management.
I do not have install disks.
Is there anything I can do to make the computer usable?
I'm not use to Vista, is there a way to reformat and re-partition if you do not have the install disks? I could not find any where to make a restore disk.

Thanks for any help you can give
