Sounds like you have kubuntu installed on a windows OS via wubi. If, so, you should be able to remove it like any MS$ progran using the Install/Remove applications menu as normal.
If your on a (K)ubuntu OS and want to remove kubuntu-desktop or kde just do:

aptitude purge kubuntu-desktop or kde and it will go away. But not sure you want to do that unless you have another desktop installed.
