What is the simplest way to access shared folders on Windows 7 system from Ubuntu?

You could get the smbclient and access the shared network with smb://.
Also look at SMB4K.

depends what you mean by simple using a filezilla to access ubuntu via ssh/scp is pretty simple.

If you want something more permanent you probably want to set up samba - I think this can be done via the gui in ubuntu now.
