LMAO
You don't delete Windows or uninstall it by deleting its folder.
You either need to use a Windows CD or use a program like Partition Magic.

Formatting is the process of removing an OS. Back up all files. Delete the partition with the Windows on it. Then join the empty space with the existing partition.

Back up as in burn all the files that you need to a DVD or CD. You can save things onto multiple discs. This is just so that you don't lose your files.
