This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

OP indicated in the comment to one of the answers that it is an WUBI install. – user68186 May 7 '13 at 16:28

To uninstall Ubuntu (if you installed it using Wubi), simply go into Programs and Features from Control Panel in Windows 7, look for Ubuntu and uninstall it, just like you would uninstall any program in Windows (see image below). It will not delete the partition, it will only delete the files that it created on that partition.

from windows7 manually delete home folder

now, if you have grub as your boot manager its not advisable to delete anything else.

if your boot manager is the windows one you can delete manually the other folders of ubuntu

for future reference: use Gparted to organize your hard drive before installing any OS so this wont happen again.

From Win 7 simply format the hard drive.

Was Ubuntu installed from within Windows using WUBI.EXE? – user68186 May 7 '13 at 16:05
Yes I install Ubuntu by using wubi – Vesal75 May 7 '13 at 16:10
With a live cd enter in the partition, save files on a usb drive and then erase the partition from win7. I always do in this way. – sharkbait May 7 '13 at 16:12
All he wants to do is uninstall Wubi, a simple fix via the Control Panel. He stated in his original question that there were files he wanted to keep, so he didn't want to reformat the entire partition. – RPi Awesomeness May 7 '13 at 17:22
