If you only wanted to try to Ubuntu, you should have made a "Live CD" to run Ubuntu from a CD instead of installing it.

To get rid of Ubuntu, delete the partition that contains Ubuntu.
Then remove the Ubuntu entry from the Windows "boot.ini" file like this:

Start Windows 7.
Click Start >> Run.
Type msconfig
Click 'OK'.

Click the Boot tab.
Highlight the Ubuntu entry.
Click the Delete button.
Click 'OK'

Restart Windows.

IF you are using GRUB as a boot loader rather than Windows boot loader, you will have to do a start up repair to reinstall the Windows boot loader. If you make a Windows 7 Repair Disk (in the Back up section), you can use that to initiate your start up repair.
When you delete the Linux partition, use the Disk Manager in Windows for the safest way since it will not let you delete your C drive, but with all partitioning, there is always a risk so make a current back up and preferably an image of your C drive 'just in case'. After you remove the Linux partition you will need to decide if you want to expand your existing partition or add another one in the free space you just created. There are advantages to both, but I have found that there is a real benefit to putting your files on a separate partition from your operating system since this will speed your recovering from a major system failure (except a drive failure).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
