Exclamation How to uninstall GRUB?

I uninstalled Ubuntu, but uninstalling it did not remove GRUB. How can i get rid of GRUB so that it will just boot into windows instead of saying that it cannot find Ubuntu?

Basically, How do I remove Grub?

If you have say an XP installation disk, insert it and then press R on the menu (I believe its R) to go into the Recovery Console.

When it asks for the Administrator password, this usually isn't set, so just press Enter.

Then type 'fixmbr' at the prompt, without the quotation marks, and it will rewrite your Master Boot Record and GRUB will be gone.
