There is a good guide on the link below that explains how you can delete the D partition and then extend the C partition in to the unallocated space.
EDIT: My mistake, I read Gb instead of Mb, Kamat_hp is correct - this should be left alone.

The 200MB active partition on you hard drive is to store the boot files and the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) for repairing your computer if necessary. its created by windows 7
