Isn't your real problem that you can't access your H drive from Windows? Which doesn't belong here on Askubuntu. – Daniel Jonsson Feb 16 '13 at 8:44
You can manually uninstall the bits that are left (just registry and boot entry, if you already removed H:): – bcbc Feb 16 '13 at 17:18

Try to run Windows in an administrative-modus (Administrator) NOT as a user. Try to repeat the nessecary steps for removing Ubuntu out of Windows: via add/remove software, select in the prompted window 'Ubuntu' and click to remove it.

Normaly Windows will ditch Ubuntu from it's system. (It takes for about 3 minutes or so)

If you have special Security software on your system, please check this software wether it allows you to install or remove software (these are all paid versions, so easy to check).
