If you want to remove ubuntu then some people may ask “why not just delete Ubuntu partitions?”. No we can’t do like this because Ubuntu installs a boot loader called
into the GRUB Master Boot Record (MBR), if you delete Ubuntu partitions all the data will be deleted but not GRUB! So when your restart your PC, GRUB will look for Ubuntu , when it does not find Ubuntu it show some error and you .

cmd -> OK). Type
cd and press enter. Then type
mbrfix /drive 0 fixmbr /yes and press enter. Now you can delete Ubuntu partitions (/, swap etc) using Easeus Partition Manager or Windows Disk Management or other partition editor.
Restart your PC.
This will overwrite GRUB with Windows boot loader . So you will see Windows boot loader instead of GRUB.
Second (Using Windows CD)
Boot your PC with Windows XP CD and select
Repair. Then select the OS, once you are there you’ll have a command line.
Type Administrator password. If Admin password is blank, just press Enter.
fixmbr, and then press Enter. Restart PC.
