Issues with Grub: Topologi and Ubuntu even after MBR fix.

I may have made a serious mistake here. If I have, please let me know. I installed Topologi Linux a week or so ago, but since I couldn't seem to get past mounting it, I gave up on it. Anyway, I installed Ubuntu and uninstalled Topologi. Then I deleted whatever reg keys I could find for Topologi since it seems its embedded itself in some file, but I still can't seem to figure out where. When I go to select Ubuntu for the boot, It goes straight to the Topologi Grub. Even when the MBR clearly says
path \ubuntu\winboot\wubildr.mbr
description Ubuntu
and mentions nothing about a connection to topologi. If I have to recover it again, fine. I just recovered the da** thing less then 36 hours ago, but anyway. If you can help please, I would greatly appreciate it. If you need any other details let me know.

Call yourself an idiot if you want, I won't go that route. Looks more like "the human factor" played a part.
