"If you are reading this, you have likely attempted or actually
set up a dual-boot system between your favorite Linux distribution
and Windows. And if you did that on a computer with a single hard
drive, that is, dual-booting Windows and Linux alongside each
other, you probably replaced the Windows boot loader with GRUB, the
Linux boot loader, in the Master Boot Record (MBR).
"Though that is not what I recommend, many still prefer it that
way, even as I have written in many of my dual-boot tutorials that
Windows will, during a reinstall, overwrite anything it finds in
the MBR, and that some anti-virus programs tend to write small
files to the MBR, messing up GRUB. "
