Boot from your windows Install CD and run fixmbr to remove the grub boot menu.

Then use the windows disk managment interface to simply delete the Partitions that were created during install for Debian.

Should take all of anout 5 minutes.

You are welcome.

Sorry Linux didn't work out for you, maybe next time around. Personally I prefer Debian, and will admit it can take a little work to get everything functioning. I don't see myself switching back any time soon

Cheers !!
