    Have you removed the partition?

    If you want to extend the system partition, you can do it with third-party tools or from the Vista Recovery Environment with diskpart.exe.

    I do not know about home since I do not use it however vista business and vista enterprise allow you to manage partitions from within windows ie disk management.

    In ultimate as well, you should be able to delete the old partition, then grow the main partition to that free space.

    Not 100% sure about home, but I would say it should still work.

    right click on computer, select Manage, select Disk Management. Right click on the 33.76 GB partition of the disk you had Ubuntu on, select Delete Volume. That 33.76 GB should now be listed as Unallocated. Right click on the primary partition on that disk, select Extend Volume.
