I installed Ubuntu via Wubi on Windows 7, and I upgraded my laptop to Windows 8. The dual boot option and Ubuntu work fine, but I cannot uninstall it; it does not appear in the programs.

You can refer to this WubiGuide for uninstallation.

When you upgraded Windows it replaced the registry entries so it can no longer uninstall automatically, but the Wubi Guide shows how to uninstall manually. This also shows how to manually remove the boot entry from the Windows Boot Manager

Its a bad idea to delete the folders from HDD, insted of doing that? – Miguel Valadez Apr 24 '13 at 3:25
@MiguelValadez if you delete the \ubuntu folder that will remove Wubi, but if you have a Windows Boot Manager entry it will remain and irritate you every time you boot. – bcbc Apr 24 '13 at 16:16
