Not that title...

You will not get the help your problem deserves with that title. Edit your thread title to give an idea of what you need.

Which Ubuntu are you using on what machine? Does the problem go away if you use Ubuntu as a live-CD?

How, exactly, did you install Ubuntu through "Windows Installer"??? Linux/Ubuntu isn't a Windows program...you have to install it as it's own operating system. Or do you mean you installed VirtualBox (or something similar), and installed it there?
