If you have used live disk to install it --

  1. Put your windows 7 disk in the drive. Reboot and choose to boot from dvd.
  2. Use "Repair" option and then choose "Repair Start Up "
  3. Once successfully completed, see if windows 7 is booting correctly as before. If not then follow - (use /fixboot and /fixmbr option)
  4. If so, in windows 7 RUN prompt, type "diskmgmt.msc" and press enter.
  5. Delete partitions that belong to ubuntu for freeing up space.

If you have using WUBI , just go to add/remove programs and remove it.
