It's been a while since I did this. **BACKUP YOUR DATA** get yerself a win95/98 boot disk boot it and type fdisk /mbr this will remove grub. Then boot windows and go into start > control panel > administartive tools > Computer Management > Disk Management. From there you can get rid of the linux (unknown to windows) partition.

please correct me if I'm wrong as I said it's been a while and that's off teh top of my head.

pretty much done with it cause idk its kinda pointless and hard for the things i do. i mostly listen to music, record music, edit videos and things and linux just isn't right for me and sometimes it can be too much of a hassle to get workin.
