Windows 7 won't boot after Ubuntu Linux Install

I installed Ubuntu on a free partion on a computer which had Windows 7 installed first, and Windows 7 won't boot. Usually installing linux after windows is recommended, but Windows 7 complains about there being a problem with its boot process.

"I do not recommend using fixmbr! It has completely screwed up my partition tables multiple times in the past. That thing is awful. Why not just grab a new bootloader such as Lilo? This ships with Slackware, but should boot any kind of Linux or Windows.

Edit:
Well I guess your thing worked. I've had a bad experience with Window's mbr fixing, though.

Good luck,
