After reinstalling Windows, if you have live CD of Ubuntu then boot
into it and use command 'sudo grub-install /dev/hda'.

Else if you have alternate CD then boot into rescue mode and then use
above command (removing sudo).
I guess you can also install grub by starting expert mode of
installation on alternate CD.

Don't ask why - the reason is the same.
