Is there anything in _that copy_ of Windows that you want?

If not:

You can download perfectly legal full ISOs of Win10 from MS itself.

Extract the product key and keep it (e.g. with ProduKey, freeware) and
just nuke it.

Otherwise, run Windows Disk Cleanup, run CHKDSK /F, empty the bin etc.
defrag it, then shrink the partition using Windows Disk Management to
as small as it will go, and install Lubuntu in a logical drive in the
free space.
