It sounds like you have used Wubi to install Ubuntu inside your Windows XP machine which is a good way to test Ubuntu but if you want ONLY Ubuntu you will need to re-install on the actual hard-drive and overwrite Windows XP itself... Wubi uses a file as a virtual hard-disk which only resides inside a WinXP install...
