I recently installed Ubuntu but have decided I would like to uninstall this now as I am getting a lot of screen flicker.
It's a known problem and is being discussed at
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1473580&highlight=screen+flicker 

I had a look in the windows XP Add remove programs and I can see Ubuntu listed for removal.
Is it OK to go ahead and remove it from  Add remove programs?
Thanks
John

Depends on how you installed it.

Yes, if you used the installer to get it installed, you can safely use the add/remove programs to uninstall it.  Keep in mind, you will lose whatever work you've saved in the Ubuntu install if you haven't moved it out of that environment.

Thanks for that, I did use the windows installer so if its done correctly and I think it is, it took about 3 seconds!
