Wubi (Windows-based Ubuntu Installer) is an official Windows-based free software installer for Ubuntu.Wubi can also uninstall Ubuntu from within Windows.

Wubi installs Ubuntu as a single file on your harddrive. No partioning required.

Don't take Wubi for granted. It actually installs the entire Ubuntu operating system...fully functional. You can boot into it like you normally would, watch videos, play games and even do the 3D effects. It's a real installation...but just in one main file.
