Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The pop-up window you see in most cases appears when you try to install Windows software on a Linux system. Linux is not compatible to Windows software, it can't run Windows software out of the box. If that is what you really want or need you may try your luck with the Wine application layer, which makes it possible to run many Windows programs on Linux, but not all work and many only partial.
It is always a better idea to find a Linux alternative to the Windows programs you use. If you really need Windows software, for example for your work, it may be better to have a separate Windows installation (either dual-boot or use a virtual machine) to run that software.
Do I need to do anything with the files that have been downloaded that I will not use?
Just delete them.
How can I find what is the best WebSite Builder For linux
I am no web developer, so I can't answer that.
is it the software manager that I find LINUX Best software?
On Ubuntu (and derived distributions) the Software Manager is the preferred way of installing software. Software Manager will show you any all the software that is available in Ubuntu's repositories. If you can't find a specific program there I would recommend to visit the website for that program, if a Linux version is available many developers offer packages for Ubuntu.
When I go to software manager I cannot find Kompozer or DreamWeaver or BlueFish..
When I try to go to Kompozer Website to Download Latest Version..FOR LINUX.. The pop-Up window after download takes me to Archive Manager.. At whish point I do not know what to do from there.. Whether I save file or open with Archive Manager I am not understanding this prompt window yet..
I did the sudo apt-get install kompozer in terminal and it said kompozer could not be found...

You don't indicate which distribution of Linux you are using. If it is Ubuntu or one of its derivatives, you could check the link below for some info, posts 2 and 5 in particular. If this is a new install you usually have to do an update/upgrade, explained in post 2 at the link below:
:~$ aptitude search kompozer
i kompozer - complete Web Authoring System
i A kompozer-data - kompozer data files
I don't know about Ubuntu.
Any chance that you did this on a Squeeze system? Wheezy and later have no Kompozer packages. On Ubuntu the last version that had Kompozer was 12.04 LTS, newer versions don't have that package. Seeing that the latest news entry on their website is from 2010 I would just guess that it simply is not maintained anymore.
