Problem Uninstalling Ubuntu 9.04 on Win XP

I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 with Wubi inside Windows XP (like regular app) and when I start my PC there is a option menu which is asking what I want to use – Windows XP or Ubuntu. The thing is that I reinstall Ubuntu OS (its just not for me), but the option menu at start up is still there.

The PC is working fine, but its just annoying. What can I do?

Should I reinstall Windows OS?

I guess you are talking about this menu:

Just edit your Boot.ini file - delete the line with Ubuntu.

 If this is your only problem there is no need to reinstall Windows.

You can just edit your Boot.ini file – delete the line with Ubuntu.

Ok, but how can I edit this file?

Is it in the Windows folder on C?

There is enough info on the web, but I will explain this shortly to you:

Right click on your My computer icon, then hit Properties. Click on Advanced, then under Startup and Recovery hit on Settings and there must be an option – System Startup – Click on Edit.

This is an example:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)WINNT="Ubuntu 9.04" /fastdetect

You just delete the last line: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)WINNT="Ubuntu 9.04" /fastdetect. Simple as that.
