Use a Super Grub Disk to repair Windows Bootloader. If this is a wubi install of Ubuntu. After you boot up Windows. Go into your programs Start>Right Click and go to the Ubuntu Folder and Open it and run the uninstaller icon in there to uninstall wubi Ubuntu. If You want wubi 9.10. Start from scratch and download the wubi 9.10 exe.
