Windows 7: Stuck with Ubuntu in boot

Stuck with Ubuntu in boot

I wanted to play around with Ubuntu but the install failed.
So I tried to uninstall it. Went to Control Panel>Programs and found Ubuntu there. However when I clicked it I got a message that there was no such program on this computer.

There is no Ubuntu on my machine but when I start the computer I get an option to either launch Windows or Ubuntu.
Is there a way to get rid of this message during the boot up?

Thanks

Got it fixed.
Downloaded a program called EasyBCD and it was no problem at all.

Thanks

Very well done Aperture! ;-)

Can you tell what you did exactly with EasyBCD?

>> Can you tell what you did exactly with EasyBCD? <<

Yes, of course, I'm happy to.
First on the downloaded .exe I installed it as Vista SP2 and Admin.
Once installed I also ran it as Admin.
In the software just click the Add/Remove Entries on the left, highlight Ubunto and click Delete. Then click Save and you're all set.

Hope this helps.
