Try "Computer Management > Disk Management" in Control Panel.
Find the ribon which relates to that physical hard drive.
Right-click and choose "Delete Volume", then choose "Create new simple volume", then format it.
You should then be able to merge it with the large partition.
All those tasks can be performed from the right-click menu, just make sure you right-click on the correct item.

If Windows won't let you perform those tasks on that disk (options greyed out) you can do it by booting your PC from this CD:
