I have read in other sites and this question about removing old entries using Synaptic Package Manager but when I open it I can't find anything when I type linux-image or numbers.

EDIT: Yes Ubuntu Tweak worked, but anyone knows why I can't find those in Synaptic Package Manager? if it matters I use Ubuntu 10.04

Just to be sure, are you sure you actually have old Linux kernels to remove? – Kris Harper Sep 2 '11 at 23:52
@root45 yes I have whole screen, and if I want to reach windows it takes a while – Templar Sep 3 '11 at 8:02

Try to uninstall the old kernels from ubuntu-tweak, is safer and easier. enter image description here (sorry the photo is in Greek)

Or read this information if want to do it manually.
