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 have installed ubuntu through wubi in my machine. Now I want to install ubuntu in the normal way (maybe through live CD or bootable pen) and I don't want to uninstall my wubi ubuntu at this moment (until I get the new ubuntu installed)
So finally what I want to have is Windows 7, ubuntu (wubi) and the ubuntu installed through the standard way. Will this configuration work?
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
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:)
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.
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).
I used wubi to install Ubuntu on its own hard drive. That drive seems to have died and I can no longer boot to Ubuntu. I tried to uninstall Ubuntu from the control panel in Windows 7 and received the message that it could not acces the uninstall file. I want to install Ubuntu again on another drive but am concerned about the dual boot that is already on my computer. What do you reccommend
