Most of the methods I see mention deleting the Linux partions using the Vista install CD, and then going into recovery through the vista CD and doing the fixmbr command. Unfortunately I don't have a vista CD, just a recovery partition. Anyways since I can still boot to vista I'm wondering if the method I mentioned would work.
If you have a bootable Vista partition, then EasyBCD is the way to go. Alternatively, I suppose you can use bootrec while in Vista.
I would highly recommend that you do not remove the linux partitions until you're absolutely certain that you're no longer using grub as a bootloader. What's on the MBR itself is nothing more then a shortcut (for a lack of terms) that points back to bits in the Ubuntu installation and you certainly don't want to leave yourself unable to boot either OS before you made the appropriate changes.
Once you have that done, you should be able to remove the partitions through disk manager
