Now, right click on the Ubuntu partitions (Volumes) and select "Delete".
There are two, a big one and a small one, less than 1GB.

These two partitions (Volumes) on the right end are your Ubuntu partitions.

If you want to make sure this is correct, boot to your Ubuntu Live CD and open GParted and look at the partitions:

Boot to your live Ubuntu CD, when it is finished loading, from the desktop:
click System, Administration, GParted

Well ... if you look closely at the GParted screen I posted, you will see the last two partitions are labeled as "ext4" and "swap". Those two partitions are your Ubuntu partitions. You can delete them with GParted, or you can boot back into Windows 7 and delete them from there.

Just do not delete anything you want to keep!!

Yes. Windows doesn't recognize anthing but NTFS and Fat32 and the last two partitions are not recognized by Windows so ...

But you can verify this before you delete them ...
