Looks like you are using LVM (which makes things easier). But since you are working with the root partition you will still have to boot from a livecd. From there the general steps are:

gparted (reduce the size of the wiindows volume) (increase the size of the linux physical volume within the vgroot volume group) or add a new partition and then run pvcreate on it and add it to the root volume group

vgdisplay should show Free PE / Size

lvdisplay (show your logical volumes) lvchange -an, (make sure the root volume is not active lvextend (-l or -L) to move the free space into the rootlv
