Please do not start a thread with a vague title such as "Help Me!!!". Members on this forum are generally not inclined to respond to such threads, For more information on how to properly create a thread or forum posting in general please follow this link. This issue is addressed in post #12 by Trickykid about half way down the page.
With that said, Ubuntu is not an application that resides on your "C" drive and therefore cannot be removed with the "Add/Remove Programs" applet. Ubuntu is an operating system which was most probably installed on a separate partition on your hard drive (unless you installed in a virtual machine). You will need to delete the Ubuntu partition with you partitioner of choice.
but you could maybe try revo uninstaller. It is a good freeware program for the kind of programs that don't show up in add/remove. It also has a hunter mode where you just hover the target over an icon and it works its magic. Other than that I would say maybe checkout Ubuntu's forum for wubi info.
