How did you install it?

Does it appear in the Windows boot loader when you start the PC, or does it start with the GRUB loader first?

If you used wubi and it starts with the boot loader, it should be in the Uninstall programs list in Control Panel.

hmm. Odd.

Can you find the 'ubuntu files' on your NTFS partition?

Perhaps post a screenshot of Disk Management to see if it hasn't actually installed to a physical non NTFS/ partition instead of a virtual HDD that wubi uses.

I've only used wubi once and it didn't play hide and seek

There is no other partition on the disk so I am guessing it has installed in windows some place. However and this is the but, there is no record of it anywhere in any of the programs I use to uninstall. The only thing i found was this. SO I know it is there but I can not find out for the life of me how to uninstall it

Have you tried downloading GParted? I split my XP partition with the partition software that comes with the Ubuntu live disc. The only problem I came across was reformatting the partition with the file type supported with Ubuntu.

If "Ubuntu" is not showing in his Programs/Features list, then he did not install via Wubi.
