You will have to look in your computer manual how to revert your computer to default settings. If you still your recovery partition then Windows will take it from there and set up itself the way it was the time of your first boot.
Any file you had there it will be lost though.
Maybe this is just your oportunity to stick with Ubuntu, really you wont mis windows.
