    i bought a new laptop a week ago. HP DV6 2005ax..
    it has windows 7 home premium 32 bit.
    It has a 320 gb hdd. i cant seem to shrink the c: drive beyond 153 gb..
    Is there is any solution to shrink it to like 50gb or smaller?

    I have 1 more query - is the windows firewall good enough or should i install some 3rd party firewall?

    Try shrinking the drive by using EASEUS Partition manager.

    Regarding your second question, yes Windows Firewall is good enough.

    hello,
    i tried the same thing on a hp laptop in my hostel the guy had two partitions only
    c with os n d with recovery
    i installed partition software n deleted the d drive to expand the pantitions as per need but cudlnt boot again.
    therefore take note n first get backup, ur os installation disks
    n then use win 7 or vista which ever u need then resize the partition as u need
