What is it for and can I delete it?

Did you buy a computer with Vista pre-installed?

Is it a recovery boot partition? If you got discs too, then probably. If not, and you need the space, you may be able to create discs.

That's if that's what we're talking about.

Ya, it's a recovery boot partition and yes I bought a new Dell Laptop that has Vista on it and has a Reinstall Disc.

Well, I'd check to see all apps are on that reinstall disc before deleting anything. That disc might have the bare necessities. Probably a good idea to back up that partition either way.

If you don't need the space, leave it alone. How big is the partition?

Is That vista program any good, Ive heard it has problems???

Well it has some bugs but I think its OK. Its not really a huge upgrade, its more like XP version 2. XP with some graphic upgrades...

I like Vista more than XP, especially the window fades and stuff.
