There is no built-in functionality to do this - you essentially have to reinstall the operating system from scratch.

However, if you want to ensure that you can do it in the future, you can use a virtual machine system which supports snapshots (such as VMWare or VirtualBox), meaning you can revert to previous states.

Another option is to use a file system which supports snapshots, such as LVM or ZFS.

There is not an option to directly reinstall Ubuntu, but if you go to your Ubuntu partition, there should be a .exe, not sure if wubi.exe or unins_wubi.exe or something familiar, but if you click that .exe, at the first screen you should see an uninstall option, then, if you deleted your .ISO or not, reinstall Ubuntu.

This is assuming you have Windows, otherwise I really don't know.
