partition wizard

I downloaded partition wizard to get rid of a linux partition on my hard drive. after I fixed my mbr I used partition wizard to delete the linux partition and resized c to take up the rest of the space, partition wizard is reading my c drive as unallocated and also windows is not detecting my recovery partition at all... what can I do to fix this. I fear that even though my recovery partition exists that it may be of no use to me if windows does not recognize it, and how can I format the unallocated space with out loosing all of my data?

yes and yes. I know that my entire Hard drive cant truly be unallocated because my computer is fully functional, I dont know why partition wizard recognizes it as unallocated but that part really dose not bother me all that much. what bothers me is that I now have a useless recovery partition.
