First question. You say you have 2 operating systems, how did this happen?
And no you don't need 2 you only need one.
Depending on whats going on with your PC it might be simpler just blanking the drive, deleting the partition and reinstalling from scratch.

Which two operating systems do you have? How did you end up with two - did you do this deliberately?

pepa31 we're not trying to be differcult here but its important to know how this happened before we can advise.
I can lead you through the process of blanking the PC and reloading windows (providing you have all the disks) but if its not done correctly you will end up back where you started. With 2 operating systems and 2 partitions.
And lets face it thats just a waste of your time and ours.
So how did you end up with 2 operating systems and what operating systems are they?

Firstly do you have anything on your PC you want to keep, things like documents photos etc and do you have anyway of backing them up, like onto CD or onto a flash drive or whatever because if you wipe the drive you will lose everything.
