I did that two days ago! (I love Linux itself, but the applications suck).

If you're going to use the entire disk, just run the Windows installer and let it delete/format the partitions that Ubuntu is on, and Ubuntu will be gone.

"to restore using my Windows 7" ? The above assumes you're doing a full install - or are you restoring a previous install, or just restoring Windows 7 as in a full install?

I tried something that shown 2 partitions and a message saying something like "windows can not do something" of either partition

If the Windows installer can't handle the (ext3 or ext4) Ubuntu partitions (your error message?) - which it *should* be able to do, boot the Ubuntu install CD and delete those partitions with "gparted" (if command line you might need "sudo gparted"), which is under the Administration menu (IIRC).
