You're lucky, all your Unallocated spaces are adjacent.

You need to resize the extended partition (sda3).  Once the extended
partition takes up the entire space, then you can resize your last
logical partition within to grow it.

You will likely need to do this from a boot cd, such as the Ubuntu
install disk, or knoppix.
