Go to Windows, and go to partition(e.g.: C: D: E: etc) where you have installed Ubuntu, open Ubuntu folder, there you can find uninstall-wubi.exe application file. By clicking this you can uninstall Ubuntu from your system.

Another option,

  1. Go to Control Panel
  2. Select Programs and features
  3. Click "Ubuntu"
  4. Click Uninstall/Change
  5. Follow the instructions.
