I downloaded Ubuntu, then tried to delete it and ended up with an 82GB healthy unknown partition that I cannot use...Should I delete it as that and "help" are the only two options I get when I right click on it.

Well...we need some more facts/details :).

If you have MCE installed, that implies that you have a MC system.

System manufacturer and model?

If you can post a screenshot from Disk Management, that will be helpful.

Start/Run...type diskmgmt.msc and hit Enter.
