First, you should download and burn off a Gparted ISO to boot from so you can select your Linux partitions and delete them. You can find the latest ISO available for download here:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gparted/gparted-livecd-0.3.4-11.iso?modtime=1197927842&big_mirror=0

Once you have the primary ext3 partition and your swap partition deleted, you should be able to resize your windows NTFS partition back out to fill in the gap.

Next, you will probably want to remove the grub menu. This can be done with a windows recovery CD via the recover console (see the fixboot/fixmbr commands here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058 )

Here is a good site about dual booting:

I would just install Windows ( if you want to install this OS) on the whole drive, then make space for ubuntu.
