Okay, as an intermediate Linux user (I never considered uninstalling Linux) your question is helping me also. Good to know how to do things. Basically and quite on the surface I am seeing this is a two parter. 1 - Uninstalling Linux is easy. 2 - What then occurs is what people run into not being aware of these extra advanced computer type things projects. That is the GRUB thingy that needs to get removed as well AFTER uninstall of Linux.

Just really basically, as I do not know if you have worked with like the BIOS section of the computer like instead of booting into Safe Mode it is like you keep tapping either F2 or F10 key up top depending on computer make. (Safe Mode is always F8). You go into BIOS sometimes when changing the Boot Order like if you are using a side drive or a USB Drive you want to boot in first order as compared to the normal operating system - these type changes are made there.

Okay so basically the Grub is part of the whole boot system of the computer used by Linux. This left over parts after uninstalling Linux is what is needed to easily be deleted - as no doubt there would be a few weird things going on leaving it there on start up of the computer. Don't worry - a couple of clicks and you will be good to go.... HERE are a few quick links I found of HOW TO...
