This question already has an answer here:

I installed my Ubuntu 12.10 using wubi.exe. My laptop crashed and I decided to re-install my Windows. Now, I cannot uninstall Wbuntu 12.10 using the control panel in Windows. I have already deleted the folders of Ubuntu 12.10 from my local disk from where its data is placed.

I thought that by using this deletion method, Ubuntu will not show whenever I reboot, but it is still there.

Can you please give advise on how I will handle this uninstall problem?

Ubuntu is deleted, only the entry is there. use bcdedit if you are on vista, win7 to delete the entry

on xp, you need to edit c:\boot.ini to remove the line containing ububntu line.

caution : for both cases don't delete windows related line/ entry
