Specs: Windows 7, IntelQuadcore 2.8 GHz
My computer runs Windows 7 64 bit. I have installed Ubuntu using the WUBI method some time ago and do not know the password to get in any more. How can I remove this Ubuntu version to install a later one and put in a new password ?

Help appreciated

Wubi uses a standard windows uninstaller. Go to control panel and remove it.

Made a repair disc as suggested. Did a repair, but nothing changed. In the program files folder found an Ubuntu folder, in which an uninstaller program. This did not work as it was incompatible with the current OS. Deleted the Ubuntu folder. On startup I still get the (Ubuntu ? ) boot options.

In the C:\ there are still the following files: wubildr and wubildr.mbr.

What will happen if these two are deleted ?

I don't know why I post stuff sometimes.

download easyBCD, its free and will clean up the startup for you.
you can delete all wubi/ubuntu files.

or you could go into control panel/sytem/adnaced system settings/advanced/startup and recovery/settings/ and remove the ububtu startup from the drop box. easy bcd makes it all easier though

Sorry to be bothersome, but I would like to know why I cannot succeed in getting rid of the bootmenu. It is not that it is too much bother, but I would like to know.

When I booted previously there were three items:
1. Earlier Windows version
2. Windows 7
3. Ubuntu
When I chose item 1 it went to Ubuntu
When I chose item 2 it went to Windows 7
When I chose item 3 it did the same

Then removed the Ubuntu folder in PROGRAM FILES and the two files wubildr and wubildr.mbr in the root

Then in the VIEW SETTINGS tab of EasyBCD there were only two items:
1. Earlier Windows version
2. Windows 7
THERE WAS NO no. 3 Ubuntu !!!

Then: In EDIT BOOT MENU item 1 was removed which left only Windows 7
Rebooting the machine came up with a menu:
1. Windows 7
2. Ubuntu

Then in the VIEW SETTINGS tab of EasyBCD there was only one item:
1. Windows 7
THERE WAS NO no. 3 Ubuntu !!!

Tried with BOOTLOADER SETUP and INSTALL BCD. On rebooting machine wouldn't start. With Installation disk and repair the machine booted again with:
1. Windows 7
2. Ubuntu

When I chose 2 it again resulted in a bootfailure with a screen, with heading WINDOWS BOOTMANAGER, saying that the file wubildr.mbr is missing.

Why does this Ubuntu entry not show up in the VIEW SETTINGS and EDIT BOOT MENU ? Looked again if there was anything with ubuntu in it and found a file: 20070609102244.30226.26591.launchpad%40canonical%40gangotri.ubuntu.com.wdseml which I deleted, but that did not change anything.

On the Windows XP installation disk there were two files MBR and FIXMBR with which the MBR could be repaired or a new one written. What happened to the possibilities ?.

You can run a start up repair from Windows 7 install disk, Repair disk, Restore disk, or recovery partition. This will fix your master boot record and will only show Windows 7 if that it what you ultimately want.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
