You don’t want to delete Ubuntu files from within Windows. The old trusted program for doing that, [Ext2Fs][1], has bricked many Linux partitions recently.

Boot into grub and selected Advanced Options. Then select the recovery option for the most recent kernel. Login to the console and then use:

$ locate xorg.conf.d
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-amdgpu.conf
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-quirks.conf
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/11-evdev-quirks.conf
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/11-evdev-trackpoint.conf
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-vmmouse.conf
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-wacom.conf
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/51-synaptics-quirks.conf
/usr/share/man/man5/xorg.conf.d.5.gz

Find the file in question on the list and use rm -f /path/filename to remove it. Then type reboot. [1]: http://e2fsprogs.sourceforge.net/ext2.html
