Hi pal !
It is not necessary to format your computer in order to get rid of a dual boot. It is just about to uninstall Ubuntu bootloader, format the ubuntu partition only, and reinstall windows bootload again (if needed).
I assume you installed ubuntu later on a separate partition in your computer, so windows boot manager manages your boot option (not the GRUB of linux). In this situation, you format the hard drive partition where ubuntu is installed, Download EasyBCD
and install in windows 7 and finally delete the linux boot entry using it.
But if linux is installed first, you are to run a Startup Repair
to run windows 7 properly , after the above steps.
