    Did you make a recovery disk/USB that you can boot to, after installing Windows?

    Windows 8.1

    I managed to change the BIOS boot up options and put the drive first.

    I now have the Ubuntu ISO disc running and will import my files.

    Is there anything I can do while it's running to save my programs (PC) before I resort to erasing everything?

    Windows 8.1

    i have Ubuntu running (but not installed) on my PC but I can't find my downloads (pics, music etc)
    Does anyone know where I can find them?

    Do I click on "search your Computer" or the "files" Icon?

    turning off services

    There are a no of places you can turn services off, so that programmes can be removed, as long as you know its name.
    Safest option
    ControlPanel>admintools>Services>progname>RIGHTclick>properties>startuptype>from dropdown>dissable or manual.
