Use Win7 to resize it's own partition, then expand ubuntu into the new free space in liveCD

I am sorry, but can you give me more details about how to do that in steps? I am new at using Ubuntu

About expanding Ubuntu partition:
boot on Ubuntu CD
select "Try" instead of "Install"
System->Administration->Gparted (to execute recorded command, use green arrow)

Why do you think you don't have enough space on partition ?

Thanks a lot!! I think so because when I open a lot of tabs for example, it stops and then ends!! also I cannot do a lot of things in parallel for example browsing and opening other applications at the same time!! knowing that I have 2G in RAM, so I thought may be because I didn't allocate enough space!! is my thought correct!!

You could need to allocate more space for swap partition (not ext4 main partition). But 2GB is a lot of RAM.
In System->Administration->System Monitor, check usage of CPU and Memory.
