Hi there
You guys make this stuff TOO complicated by far

Here's REALLY how to do it ( I'm an "Old Fashioned" Oil and Gas Engineer not an I.T Guru - but I've messed around (and messed UP) enough computers in my time.

Link refers to UBUNTU - but any Distro -- same procedure.

uninstall - Removing GRUB from windows system after uninstalling Ubuntu from Windows 7 - Ask Ubuntu

Cheers

So, step 3 (clean up the bootmgr) should be skipped in my case, right? Should I allocate the remaining 25 GB to the rest of this disk (how to do that, thanks) or leave them there in case I want to reinstall Linux?

Sorry if I ask so many times, it's my first time ever I get involved with having to remove an OS, rearranging disk sectors, GRUB stuff, etc. It's all too techie for me, I'm afraid.

Thanks all

Problem solved. The remaining 25GB partition was automatically created by the notebook manufacturer, ASUS, as a recovery partition for the OEM Recovery Disks. Thanks.
