Merging two partitions

I have an XP partition and a Vista partition. I don't want the XP partition, as it isn't activated, and I don't need it. The Vista is C:, and XP D:. Is there a way to eliminate/merge the two partitions so that I retain the Vista information without the XP. I have the Vista partition cloned on my external at the moment, but I would like to do so without wiping it fully, if possible.

I know how with XP but not Vista. But it can cause problems. You can always just format the one partition. But you want to merge them into one.

I would say wipe the drive and then mirror/copy the clone drive to your main drive.

You can do this with disk management built into windows. Go into disk management and delete partition D. Now right click on partition C and click "extend volume". This will only work if the D partition shows up to the right of the C partition.
