Get Parted Magic, and resize: shrink your Windows and expand your Linux partitions.

Please make sure you backup your important files in linux and windows before resizing.
If possible, create an image of the system.
Make sure you have the latest version of gparted, so the different filesystems are supported.

Kind regards
