Partition magic but it's still a risk.
I'd Image the partitioms, to another drive, repartition them and image the partitions back to the new size.

Tricky doing that even without another drive though.

Download Gparted:
http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?group_id=115843&filename=gparted-live-0.4.5-2.iso&a=95579909

Burn the downloaded iso to a CD

You will need to burn the image not the file. use ImgBurn if you don't have any image burning apps.

Then boot from the CD and partition.

Partitioning the system drive can sometimes corrupt the MBR and/or integral system files. Suggest you create an image of it as mentioned.
