Windows 7: With dual load, how to delete the Linux partition

With dual load, how to delete the Linux partition

I have Windows 7 and Linux Ubuntu, dual load configuration.
I want to delete the Ubuntu partitions and have just Windows 7.
I am concerned that at this time, GRUB2 is controlling the load sequence and if I delete the Ubuntu partitions I will not be able to load Windows 7, because the mbr has been altered.
I need to know how I can restore the mbr and safely delete the Ubuntu partitions.
Thanks
James

Do you now have System Recovery Options on F8 Advanced Boot Options?

Moving or restoring the Windows 7 boot files by marking the target partition Active and then running Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times is the only way all boot parameters are tested and repaired. All other methods leave out important aspects like System Recovery Options on F8.
