I was recently told that using lubuntu or xubuntu would be better for my old machine than just plain old ubuntu. Would i use wubi to uninstall ubuntu 12.10 and then cancel the install? thanks!

I installed Ubuntu 12.10 via wubi. Because of some problems with the wifi connection I chose to uninstall it. I started wubi again and it said that I have to uninstall ubuntu before installing it again. So I agreed to uninstall ubuntu without installing a new version.
I tried to use the Windows add remove program to uninstall Ubuntu, but it says I dont have access to the uninstall-wubi. which is apparantly on my H drive which windows doesnt even know exists. is it possible to download an uninstall-wubi and use it
I recently purchased a Thinkpad R40 with Lubuntu on it but don't have the install cd's. The person I got it from doesn't know the administrator password so I can't access any changes. I went to the root screen thinking maybe I could change the password that way but it keeps telling me Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue).
Would it be possible to somehow uninstall Windows after installing Ubuntu with wubi.exe? So I install Ubuntu using Windows, but then REMOVE Windows and add GRUB so the computer boots up TO ONLY Ubuntu afterwards? I am having a hard time with using USB or CD's, and wubi seems to be the easiest method. Any help is appreciated:)
Hello, trying to install Xubuntu or Lubuntu on Fujitsu Athlon 2600.
CDs are checksummed. Live session OK but no install to go after first dialogue box. CD keeps grinding and no way out but wild shutdown.
Windows XP + Ubuntu 10.4 installed (recently), boot menu OK, but old box will not stand upgrades of recent Ubuntu.
Last night I installed Lubuntu 11.10 on my desktop PC, before that I only had Ubuntu 11.10, but now I have a "Dual-Boot" PC, with GRUB. The problem, I want to uninstall Lubuntu because it doesn't liked to me :(
I tried to do that on Lubuntu's Live-CD GParted, but it has partitions that I don't know.
I was updating ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04 then something happened when i restarted my computer and ubuntu wasn't getting started after selecting ubuntu from boot menu
So i tried to uninstall the ubuntu from windows remove programm but i got the error as shwon below.
