If you used the Wubi installer and installed Ubuntu from while booted in windows, you can simply uninstall Ubuntu in the same manner as you would uninstall an application from windows. If you installed Ubuntu from a live CD on a separate partition, all you must do is delete the partition that contains Ubuntu.

"all you must do is delete the partition that contains Ubuntu". This will leave GRUB installed and at next boot OP will get GRUB rescue prompt. See the downvoted answer in the suggested duplicate. –  Danatela Jun 10 '14 at 9:03
