The proper way to remove Wubi/Ubuntu was to go into your "Programs and Features" in Windows 8 and remove it. I guess you could try it now. Go to "Programs and Features" (not sure what it's called in Windows 8) as if you were going to uninstall a program, and you should find Ubuntu in the list (note sure if you'll find it after you deleted the ubuntu folder). If you find it, uninstall it. – Alaa Ali Jul 25 '13 at 9:55
See How do I remove the extra Ubuntu option on the Windows boot manager menu to remove Ubuntu from the Windows boot manager screen – bcbc Jul 25 '13 at 19:15
