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?
The Wubi.exe is on the Ubuntu 1404 disk, not on Xubuntu1404 disk; (and when you launch it supports Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu), but... doesnt support Xubuntu. Can anyone provide guidance? Thanks so much!
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 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
