What are you trying to do resize?
In disk manager is it recognizing as 120g with 40G unallocated space?

If your intention is to resize C:\
Delete E:\partion
In disk manager you can right-click the C:\ partition and select resize
It's safer to use gparted-live-cd that way you're not on mounted partition

Download cdburnerxp make it default iso burner
Forget about e download gparted-live-cd.

You tried gparted-livecd?
You have to boot from cd.
