If you use OS-Uninstaller is performs a complete wipe of the entire partition. This means all data on that partition will be deleted. If there is any data you wish to save you can back it up prior to removing windows. I would suggest mounting the windows partition and use your file browser in Ubuntu to copy desired files into your home folder.

Since I also had problems with Wicd + NetworkManager, it had to be decided which one will disappear from the OS, as it seems both interfaces do a sloppy job when it comes to deal with dependencies and side effects. First I decided to remove Wicd, and that should match your question (then I tried Wicd without NM, but that's another story...). Normally, if ...

You don't need windows to overwrite it; use the USB key you already have, or the one you're going to use to re-install from; the obvious thing to do is to download Xubuntu, create the new USB drive, and do as others have suggested; if you really want to clear the drive first, you could just open a terminal, sudo -i to become root, & use fdisk to remove ...

How did you install wireshark? Probably should have used Software center or Synaptic or apt, they can remove it for you. Or if you downloaded some file yourself and extracted it, then just delete the extracted files, but that can be tricky to find them all & know whether or not any other programs depend on them (probably not in this case), that's why ...
