There's also a filesystem driver for ext2/ext3 which allows you to
write and delete files on those partitions under windows.
Take a look at: http://www.fs-driver.org

The fs-driver is very cool. It allows you to mount your linux partition to a drive letter of your choice, which makes it available via Windows Explorer. Maybe I'm wrong,
but I don't think it works for ext3. I quickly tried it on a laptop from work, but quickly is the keyword there.

I do as the others have said, and just copy from NTFS, and delete from Windows. Although, I rarely boot into Windows ;) When I do I use explore2fs, or more recently the fs-driver.
