Yes, you can remove Grub and Ubuntu. And you can restore the Windows boot loader.

Do you have a Windows 7 install DVD?

Well, yes, and no. I have the Upgrade version. How do you take the boot snapshots? How do I remove Ubuntu and Grub?

Good. That is what I have as well, Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade.

You can use your Upgrade DVD to fix the "Startup". Please look here: Repair CD - System Repair Disk
at the steps pictured. What you will do is boot to your Upgrade DVD and follow the steps until you get here:
MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record-start_repiar_01.png

When you get to this screen click on the "Startup repair". When done, restart and do it a second time, restart and do it a third time. Then see if you can boot into Windows 7?

Doing the "Startup Repair" three times in a row will remove the Grub bootloader and replace it with the Windows boot loader. When that is done, it is easy to remove Ubuntu from Windows 7. But do this first and I promise to answer you other questions as well.

Cheers!
