Question Reinstalling Vista

I have Vista Premium installed right now. Some things are messed up with the registry, and I want to do a clean re-install. Currently, my partition table is as follows:

C: Vista installation
D: Files and stuff
Linux Partition (Ubuntu)
GRUB Partition

I have GRUB loader as default, and I choose Vista from the partition list
My question is, can I safely format (without deleting) the C: partition and reinstall Vista on there, without messing up the GRUB boot loader? Could I even delete the Vista C: partition without messing up GRUB? Last thing I would want right now is reinstalling the OS to find that GRUB can't find it..
