I'd appreciate anything anybody can give me, re: advice. I'm in a bind.
Here's what happened: recently I wanted to run an .exe program on my Mac. I'm not a computer whiz, and as I tend to do, I proceeded to ignorantly wade through the internet, finding and following various tutorials, haphazardly attempting to install Ubuntu so that I might run a Windows program.
Honestly, I don't even remember what happened. But now on my Mac menu bar there is a diagonal arrow and when I click on the arrow I get an Ubuntu menu with a list of where I assume programs would be if I had installed Ubuntu correctly.
I've read on the forum here and elsewhere but I can't find the appropriate answer. Other people removing Ubuntu seem to be way more computer literate than me. When I open Disk Utility I don't see any Ubuntu partitions (that I know of.)
My question is how do I remove/uninstall Ubuntu or whatever it is I installed without harming my computer? Any advice would be enormously appreciated. I'm afraid I might have ruined my hard drive (haven't seen any evidence of this, but am wary of it anyhow.)
